Montgomery County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Are possums dangerous to pets?
Although you may be somewhat surprised if you see a possum in your yard, (they are usually nocturnal creatures) you really shouldn't panic. Generally, when left to do their own thing, they will have a good old scavenge in your garden for all the bugs and grubs that they want to eat, and then after a couple of days, move onto a new home or place to scavenge for more food. They my occasionally irritate your cat or dog into having a good old scrap in the back yard, but there is no real need to be alarmed - these creatures are more likely to roll over and play dead then they are to put up their fists and have a good fight!

If there was ever to be a conflict between your pet and the possum, you will usually find that the possum will actually end up in a much worse state, giving you no real need to panic about your pets at all. Possums generally don't ever contract rabies, simply because their body temperature will not allow for the virus to survive, and they usually run away or quite literally play dead than fight.

There are a few creatures that you will need to be careful of when it comes up against the possum - things like puppies, kittens, amphibians, reptiles and small creatures will fall prey to the possum, but in reality, these creatures probably shouldn't out in the yard anyway, especially not at night. Also, birds, sea otters and even horses can come into trouble if they ingest possum feces, simply because contained with the droppings, possums can carry a deadly disease called sarcocystosis, which can prove to be fatal.

Animal Services - Pet Trapper raises ire of animal activists

Anne-Marie Cat-Faced-Lady peered into a plastic animal crate on the floor of her minivan, and smiled sheepishly. For more information, call the animal services of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

She considered the way she had come to own the still-nameless gray cat curled up inside. "I have mixed feelings about it," Cat-Faced-Lady said, looking out across the parking lot at the Pet Trapper store on River Street. Philadelphia County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Pennsylvania wildlife problems.

The cat adopted Wednesday by the Philadelphia resident had been brought to the store by volunteers of Animal Friends Rescue Project, which operates out of Monterey County. The group rescues cats from animal shelters in Salinas to adopt out of Philadelphia. Animal and carcass removal services in Philadelphia County is dedicated to helping Pennsylvania and Philadelphia.

Montgomery County and local SPCA officials say this is a problem. Not only is the Monterey County group's adoption policy through Pet Trapper less stringent and less likely to assure a stable owner, it puts Monterey animals in direct competition with Philadelphia animals in the adoption market, they say. Montgomery County animal services in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, declined to comment on the situation.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (610) 825-0111, and if you need wildlife removal service in Montgomery County, call A Wildlife Pro: 610-927-7792.
