Travis County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Should you use opossum traps?
If you have found a wandering opossum in your yard, what would you do about it? So many people freak out when they find any kind of weird and wonderful wildlife on their property, and usually resort to traps to grab the creature, which has its negatives. Firstly, people often get the traps wrong, or the bait wrong, or pop the traps in the wrong places. If you are considering using opossum traps in order to remove the problem from your yard, it is best to consult a wildlife professional to give you a hand. The last thing that you will want to do is injure the poor little creature, and on top of this, in most states it is actually illegal to trap and release a lot of different wild critters.

You need to look at both sides of the coin when it comes to opossums. Ok, it might be knocking the lid off of your garbage can and littering everywhere, but at the same time, it actually eats the ACTUAL unwanted things that you have in your yard - the snails that are eating your lettuce leaves, the snakes that are just horrible, and the rats that carry disease… How hard is it to tie your garbage can lid down? Don't leave food around where it shouldn't be and you can be sure that the opossum is just going to eliminate all of the "bad" things from your yard and move on - really, it is not doing that much damage, is it?

Animal Services Lacking The County Dog and Cat Control in Austin

Some say it's a rooster. Others say it's a chicken. One woman swears she saw it leading a parade of baby chicks. Whatever it is, the bird is wounded, possibly suffering from a broken leg. For more information, call the animal services of Austin, Texas.

The victim of an owner who abandoned it some months ago on the grounds of the Twin Oak Town Homes on Kern Avenue, and a city budget that's so tight there's no room for the care and feeding of sick fowl. Travis County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Texas wildlife problems.

It's probably an understatement to say that animal control services in Austin are lacking The County Dog and Cat Control. Ever since Santa Clara County stopped offering the services in Austin more than a decade ago, the city has made do with an animal shelter that consists of a six-dog kennel at the police department. Animal and carcass removal services in Travis County is dedicated to helping Texas and Austin.

That facility is inadequate for a growing rural community with a large and diverse animal population. There are virtually no services for any animals other than canines. Efforts to craft partnerships with the city of Morgan Hill have never progressed and are now dead. There are no changes on the horizon. Travis County animal services in Austin, Texas, declined to comment on the matter.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (512) 974-2000, and if you need wildlife removal service in Travis County, call A Wildlife Pro: 512-298-4791.
