  • 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 Arapahoe 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 Littleton animal control for wildlife issues.

If you want to avoid breathing in or touching skunk feces, you must first know what exactly it looks like. The feces are usually in tubular shape and are about once inch in their size. The look is similar with the cat feces. There are often undigested particles of food inside the feces. These food particles come from grass, feathers, seeds, berries, insect parts and more. And, the feces sometimes look spotted just like skunks.

What are the Diseases that Are Contracted by Breathing or Touching Skunk Feces?

There are a lot of diseases that can be contracted by breathing or touching skunk feces. Other diseases are airborne and others are contracted by means of skin contact. The diseases are as follows:

Listeriosis. This can affect both animals and humans. And, this can cause diarrhea, brain swelling, paralysis, itching and fatigue.
Rabies. This animal can also host the virus of rabies. The skunk can spread the disease to other animals and to humans. Although it is not that rabid, it is still essential to avoid it.
Baylisascaris columnaris. This is known to cause damage to the liver, blindness, death and brain dysfunction to most sufferers.
Canine Distemper. This is not only known to affect humans but even animals. This will eventually lead to bodily discharge, bodily swellings and death of an infected animal.

Other Diseases Contracted from Breathing or Touching Skunk Feces

Skunks as Carriers of Bacterial Infection

For homeowners, it is essential to keep in mind that skunks are a carrier of bacterial infection. Rabies may not be transmitted by way of feces. But, they are still transmitted by contact with an infected saliva or bite.
