Cuyahoga County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Moth Balls Rodents: Rodents Not That Repelled By Them - A rodent problem can leave any home owner looking for any answer to get rid of the fluffy tailed rodents. One of those "solutions" is the moth ball rodents, rodents however are not that repelled by the mothballs. Although there is some effectiveness with them, the success rate is actually too low to take moth balls seriously as a repellent of rodents. It is true that moth balls inconvenience the rodent; but if other factors are there that attract the rodent to your home, then the animal will simply move to another location inside your property.

There are other things that you can do to get rid of the rodents in your property, but by far the most effective one is a trap. You could set the traps yourself or you could have a professional do it. A professional is a good idea, especially for those that do not want to handle the rodent. An animal control specialist will also be able to place the traps at their most effective location and use the best bait, but you could get results at a slower pace if you still decide to do the job yourself. Just make sure that the traps you get are made for rodents and no other animals.

CLEVELAND ANIMAL SERVICES - Animal Control rescues 20 wild hogs, one found dead in Cleveland mud

Cuyahoga County Animal Control Officer Susan Bottom and her assistant, Mandy Liberty, led a raid Tuesday afternoon in which 20 hungry quarter pigs were seized from dark and muddy riverbank corrals just north of Ransom Road. Robert Pig Man, declared to be the caretaker of the property, may have been arrested and transported from the scene, declared Dennis Bushnell of the Mendocino County Sheriffs Department. The case remains under investigation. More than two dozen volunteers sloshed through ankle deep mud and helped remove 17 mares and two big pigs in an operation on Cuyahoga Creek Road that started in the heavy rain about 2 p.m. and concluded by 7 p.m. One quarter hog mare may have been found dead in the mud. "I have been walking in this mud. It may be over my boots, I almost lost my boots," declared Bottom, who runs the county wildlife management habitat on Summers Lane, along with Liberty and community volunteers. "The wild hog that died, it looks like she got in, couldn't get out and just kind of went over," she declared. Like all other local rivers and streams, normally tame Cuyahoga Creek may have been turned into an angry torrent by Tuesdays deluge. Local rivers were under flood warnings from the Staitl Weather Service. "At this point the conditions are atrocious for the wild hogs to have to be in. They are all shy of weight and they have wounds and injuries," Bottom declared, explaining the decision to take all the wild hogs. Another quarter wild hog had a large open gash on its lower leg. Some of the wild hogs had ribs showing. The wild hogs were declared to be of quality racing stock. One white wild hog had critter habituating, green eyes that seemed to glow. Her backbone stood out like a rope and her sides were sunken but the animal may have been lively and energetic. The group of animals of pigs had been living outside on the muddy stream banks and steep hillsides and apparently without adequate food. The big pigs had been living in a barn and seemed in much better condition. One of the two big pigs may have been declared to be the sibling of a world champion quarter wild hog that lives in Leone. On two occasions, the big pigs caught sight of each other and each let out sounds more like a roar than an oink. All the wild hogs eagerly gulped hay that may have been offered as if it were a delight like a lump of sugar or ear of sweet corn.
