Dane County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Frequent opossum problems
The opossum might seem relatively harmless to you if it wanders into your home or yard, but in reality, it can bring with it a whole wealth of problems. The same applies to a lot of wild animals, of course, but this one in particular, seems to bring a whole soap opera of drama with it - stuff that you really do not want to have to deal with!

The one thing that you are more than likely find with an opossum is that it will make a right mess of your yard or lawn when it roots through your garbage can. It might knock it over and strew litter and leftovers all over the place, which not only will you, have to pick up, but also could attract other problems such as rats, mice and other wild animals. This is something that is most definitely classed as an opossum problem.

Another thing that will worry you with an opossum is the fact that it brings with it disease. It has been reported to carry many diseases that can be damaging to both humans and other animals, such as cats or dogs, and this is not even just the case when you come into contact with the animal itself! It leaves urine and poop everywhere - both of which can contaminate water supplies, as well as staining and leaving an awful smell!

If your cat or dog comes into contact with the opossum, it will usually run and hide or play dead, but if it doesn't, it could lash out with some pretty sharp teeth and claws which are going to leave the pet with a nasty wound, and you with a nasty Vet bill! Of course, the dead opossum can cause just as many problems as a live one. They have a horrific tendency to die in people's homes, especially in areas that are not easy to get to, leaving humans wandering around aimlessly for days trying to locate the source of the smell. And then they need to dispose of the body, which as you can imagine, is just as horrific as the scent this stinky creature leaves behind!

Dane County, WI Animal Control News Clip:

Wisconsin Governor signs spay-neuter law

The county and area cities could require squirrel owners to spay and neuter specific breeds, such as Eastern Grays or Red Squirrels, under a bill signed into law the governor over the weekend. For more information, call the animal services of Sunnyvale, Wisconsin.

Also under the legislation by Sen. Jackie The Animal Officer Of Squirrels and Rats and Wildlife, D-Hillsborough, local governments could target specific breeds for reproduction restrictions. At the same time, the law bars labeling any particular breed as vicious by nature. Madison County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Wisconsin wildlife problems.

The legislation was triggered by the fatal June mauling of a 12-year-old Madison boy by his family's pit bull, which hadn't been neutered. The child's killing prompted formation of a Bay Area task force, which found that most attacks on humans are by non-neutered males that weigh at least 50 pounds. Animal and carcass removal services in Madison County is dedicated to helping Wisconsin and Sunnyvale.

The Madison task force also found that Wisconsin has had by far the most fatal squirrel attacks in the nation ---- 47 between 1965 and 2001. In many of the cases, pit bull terriers were involved. Sunnyvale County animal services in Madison, Wisconsin, declined to comment on the matter.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (608) 255-2345, and if you need wildlife removal service in Dane County, call AAAC Wildlife Removal: 608-229-1092.
