  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Colorado's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Colorado's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Boulder county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Erie animal control for wildlife issues.

Erie Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it against the law to kill a raccoon?

Is it against the law to kill a raccoon? There are some jurisdictions all over Canada and United States that do not permit killing a raccoon. But, there are some that allow it as well without any form of restriction. In some other states in the United States, killing a raccoon is part of the religious activity. In Canada, on the other hand, killing a raccoon is known to result in cruelty charges to some animals.

Places that Killing a Raccoon is Considered as Not Illegal

In Toronto, Canada, killing a raccoon is considered as something not illegal. They permit the capture of a raccoon. Nevertheless, the regulations of HealthCanada discourage the release of pest animals like raccoon in the locations. People in Toronto would trap a raccoon and carry it to a professional vet for the sake of euthanasia.

Check with the Animal or Wildlife Control Officials Before you Kill a Raccoon

It will be an essential idea if you will check with the animal or wildlife control officials before you kill a raccoon. You need to contact them in any large area or urban city before you do it. In some smaller cities, they have a designated wildlife sanctuary that avoids killing a raccoon. In some bigger cities or areas, animal control will only be concerned with a sickened or dead animal.

Places that Consider Killing a Raccoon as Legal

The majority of Canadian provinces and United States regulate the population of raccoon. They release a license for killing, trapping and hunting a raccoon. Actually, the licenses were intended in allowing the killing of a raccoon. This is for the purpose of obtaining a fur. Nevertheless, it is not suggested to skin the raccoon as it is to be avoided.

It is a must to obtain a license before you set out the traps or go hunting. There will also be some limits to the raccoons that you will need to be killed. The recommended number for killing a raccoon is 5 every day.

One more thing is that the majority of states have their limited seasons for hunting. These will include the winter months. If they are not considered in season, they will never be allowed to be killed.

Read the Hunting Regulations

It is a wise decision to read the hunting regulations properly and carefully. There are also some hunting violations that might require you to pay fines if not followed. For instance, it is not allowed to hunt a raccoon on a Sunday. In the event that you forget to carry your hunting permit for the public land, it might result you to paying a fine.
