If you have any questions about the wildlife of Wichita, you can contact the Kansas Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the Kansas Fish & Wildlife Agency. Kansas game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Wichita wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Wichita like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as Wichita Wildlife Removal at 316-665-4842.
Kansas State mammal: American bison
State reptile: Ornate box turtle
State amphibian: Barred tiger salamander
State insect: European honey bee
Kansas is considered the flattest state in the nation, though that award can be disputed depending on the method of measurement. As a general rule, when it comes to simply traveling through Kansas or viewing it from the viewpoint of a pedestrian, it is indeed 'flatter than a pancake' as the locals say. Two-thirds of the state belongs to the Great Plains, and only one-third is considered to be heavily forested and somewhat less flat. Kansas has both hot/humid regions and hot/dry regions in the state, and similarly, winters are cold and wet or cold and dry. Unfortunately, because of the flat lay of the land, this state is prone to severe weather, often in the form of violent thunderstorms and subsequent tornados.
Decades ago, bison were once plentiful in Kansas, and many of the Native American tribes in the state were nomads, following the large animals across the plains. Bison are no longer present in Kansas, at least not in their wild state. The only non-domesticated grazers on the plains are now white-tailed deer, pronghorns, elk, and mule deer.
At one time, large predators were found throughout the region. Mountain lions, black bears, grizzly bears, and gray wolves were all once native to Kansas but have since been extirpated. The largest predators in the state are now coyotes and bobcats with foxes and badgers bringing up the rear.
Kansas is home to a number of small animals. This is especially true for rodents. These animals make good use of the long grasses and ample fields of grains. Not only are their larger rodents like prairie dogs, gophers and porcupines, there are many smaller rodents such as cotton rats, deer mice, woodrats, prairie voles, and grasshopper mice. While these smaller animals fare better during violent weather on the plains, larger creatures must seek shelter in natural bowls or by grouping together for herd protection.
Rodents are not the only pest animals to make their way onto people's properties, however. Kansas has a fair share of raccoons, skunks, foxes, ferrets, rabbits, hares, wild boar, armadillos, and bats. The opossum is also a common pest animal. This marsupial can be very problematic if it decides to live in an attic space.

Today, as more and more people build their homes in rural areas or what was once rural areas, they find their dream homes being damaged by wildlife intent on sharing their homes with them. Animals cause millions of dollars in damages yearly in direct destruction to roofing, siding, guttering, and insulation. As well as millions more in indirect damages from water leakage and fires caused by compromised wires and clogged flues. Repairing the damage often isn't enough. The problem animals will only return if not caught and removed. This is where we can help you, the home or business owner.
October served us very well since the weatherfellow told us that it was one of the driest Octobers on record. One thing nice for anglers was that we had a lot of nice warm days to wet a line and enjoy fall fishing. Hooray for wild creatures and critters!
For me, it was my birthday on Halloween and would you believe that I celebrated the first 21 years on Nov. 1. What happened was, when I turned 21, I was drafted into the army for World War II, which so many of us went to fight for our country. Remember to treat the wild animals of Wichita, Kansas, with respect and care.
Anyway, I had to get a birth certificate to take with me for induction, so we went to the courthouse in Wauseon, Kansas to get one. I knew everyone in the courthouse as I was working for the local newspaper and gathered courthouse news. Snakes and coyotes are not all mean.
I told the clerk I needed a birth certificate. She said, "what day were you born?" and I said, "November 1, 1920." She went back into the file room and came back out and said she couldn't find it. Joking, she said, "are you sure you were born on that day?" For more on Wichita wildlife, read on.
Behind is a valley of pines and broken cliffs and fog as lovely as an Ansel Adams photo. Footing is very unstable, but The wildlife management expert, a longtime wildlife trapper and former San Marino police chief, knows this shaky terrain. He moves up the ridge in seamless methodical motion, relying on momentum to keep him from falling backward onto boulders and yucca. From the top, near Mt. Baldy, the 45-year-old wildlife trapper can see vast distances and scout for mink and badger he hopes to animal control the next day. It's a needle-in-a-haystack proposition because The wildlife management expert is in the middle of the worst mink and badger-animal exterminating country in Kansas.
