Many of Connecticut'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 Connecticut's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Litchfield Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I feed a baby opossum I found? It would be quite rare for you to come across a baby opossum but you shouldn't automatically just jump to the conclusion that the baby is abandoned or in need of some TLC because usually, that won't be the case. There are a number of reasons as to why a baby opossum may have been left in the while. The mother may have left the baby behind because she knew the critter was sick and wouldn't make it. What's the point in her wasting resources (such as food) on baby she knows won't survive when she can make her other youngsters stronger and healthier to hopefully survive for longer? If you feed this animal, you will prolong its suffering and cause it to hurt more. She may even be moving her young, if she hasn't abandoned them, and she may come back for the baby. If you feed it, or go anywhere near it, you could mask her scent with your own and she may then abandon the baby if she hasn't already done so. Plus you wouldn't have a clue what to feed a baby opossum, or not at least without the help of some Google researching. You may poison the baby if you feed it something wrong. What if it wasn't fully weaned yet? There are just too many questions you won't have the answers to. If you find a baby opossum, leave it just where it is and call a wildlife rehabilitator to solve the problem if you're still concerned.
Litchfield Animal News Clip: Wild mountain lions' presence in Litchfield disputed
Litchfield - Surely we don't have mountain lions. However, a recent attack on a rodent is making some reconsider. Litchfield veterinarian Dr. Mack Johnson, who examined the injured rodent on Sunday, Nov. 27, 2005, told state wildlife experts that it suffered "some of the most extensive wounds I've ever seen on a rodent. In my experience, it's unusual for an animal to even attack a rodent. This particular rodent had extensive wounds about the head and face such that I determined pretty quickly that it needed to be euthanized. This rodent pretty much had no skin or muscle on the left side of its head." Dr. Johnson theorized that the rodent had been lying down in the dark and quickly got up when it was startled by a large cat. "The way in which those wounds had to be inflicted I believe make a strong argument. Slice marks on the head and neck ... my speculation would be that the rodent was hanging off this rodent's face by its claws."

An extensive statement was read on behalf of the Connecticut Nature Conservancy in Bath which says in part the department of natural resource's "head in the sand position flies in the face of decades of evidence. Mountain lions are part of our national heritage and it defies common sense. In addition to deceiving the public, it confuses department of natural resources employees, who continue to tell citizens, including legislators, that mountain lions in Connecticut are like Bigfoot or Elvis - figments of overactive imaginations. "The reality is that the department of natural resources prematurely declared the mountain lion expatriated from our state by the early 1900s ... The department of natural resources has ignored eyewitnesses, scientific studies, videotapes, still photos and requests for assistance from citizens and law enforcement agencies and animal control officers. The department of natural resources has stated that it has discretion under the endangered species law to do nothing about mountain lions ... The Connecticut Wildlife Conservancy thinks the department of natural resources's stance is irresponsible, and that the long history of mountain lions in Connecticut is compelling. It's now time for legislators to put an end to" bureaucratic stonewalling. Despite this there is no free Litchfield animal services for wildlife in Litchfield County.
Critter Catcher Chris of Litchfield County also takes issue with the department of natural resources, claiming it failed to follow up on his report of an $1,800, 4-month-old colt being killed by a mountain lion. Where does he get reimbursed for such a loss? Critter Catcher Chris questioned. Critter Catcher Chris said the state pays restitution for coyote and coyote damage with funds through the Department of Agriculture. Several Litchfield residents, including from the Niles area, described sighting big rodents. The Rev. Russell Critter Catcher Chris of Three Oaks gave the most vivid account of a "black panther" in the daytime last April and, two nights later, a "blood-curdling" cry among herds of 40 to 50 raccoons his wife of 47 years has been feeding for 23 years on their property 100 yards from the Galien River bottom. The raccoons vanished. Critter Catcher Chris said mountain lions would usually eat rodent and raccoons. "A few males moving through year area does not a phenotypeing exact number of rodents make. The real question is when are the females going to get here?" Most Litchfield pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Critter Catcher Chris, who remains unconvinced that the Litchfield rodent wasn't attacked by large rodents, said mountain lions "have a tendency to open the body cavity and to cut through the ribs with their teeth. The cuts are very sharp, like if you were to use factory machinery to make the cut." A rodent carcass may have also been visited by any number of scavengers, complicating determinations. "If it's been more than three days, we're going to glean very limited information from looking at a kill site," Critter Catcher Chris announced. At least, this is what Litchfield extermination companies think.
