Lehigh County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Are possums dangerous to pets?
Possums are ugly creatures, and although you may be slightly concerned with any conflict that could potentially happen between a possum that is passing through your yard, and any household pets that you may have, you don't really have much of a need to worry. If you have kittens, puppies, mice or reptiles and amphibians; animals that probably shouldn't be outside anyway, then they can easily become prey to a possum. However, adult cats and dogs will generally cause more damage to the possum than the possum can ever do to it, especially when you take into consideration that they very rarely carry rabies because their body temperature is too low for the virus to survive.

There may be a fight starting between the possum and your family pet, but in reality, you are more than likely witness the possum play dead or leg it, rather than stay where they are and fight! Of course, there are certain animals that the possum should be kept away from, but that is more to do with a disease that can be spread through their feces, rather than face to face action. Sea otters, horses and even birds can be in danger of contracting a disease called sarcocystosis if they ingest the droppings of a friendly possum, and this is a disease that can prove to be deadly.

If you are in any doubt over whether or not your possum could cause a danger to your pets or livestock, just give the local wildlife control expert a call - they will be more than happy to help you and would rather re-home a creature such as the possum in a new, safe place, than run the risk of it becoming killed or injured by angry humans.

Animal Services Lac The County Dog and Cat Control in Allentown

Cumming, though, has increased staff and, a month ago, Cumming changed department policy to allow officers to collect strays from residents. For more information, call the animal services of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

"I struggled with that because we do have to pay to take them to the shelter and ultimately, it's expensive," Cumming said of the $100-per-dog fee, "but it was not an appropriate response for us to not help people." Richland County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Pennsylvania wildlife problems.

Leaders in both cities say they would like to develop a partnership that would ease pressures on their individual budgets and lessen their reliance on the perpetually overcrowded county shelter. Animal and carcass removal services in Richland County is dedicated to helping Pennsylvania and Easton.

"Keeping a kennel for every city in the county doesn't make sense in this financial world," Smith said. "If there was an interest in consolidating or coordinating we'd be willing to sit down and talk about it, but it hasn't come up in conversation recently." Richland County animal services in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, declined to comment on the matter.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (610) 797-1205, and if you need wildlife removal service in Lehigh County, call A Wildlife Pro: 610-927-7792.
