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.

Norwich Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a bat's natural habitat? These days bats are heading more and more into human habitats but out in the wild, a bat would normally live in a roost in places such as tree hollows or old caves. If they find a space big enough, thousands and thousands of bats can all live together happily in one roost. Wood piles and rock piles are preferable, especially to the Little Brown Bat, and unused mines can also provide the perfect home, especially for a maternity colony. These days, bats are choosing human habitats over their once-natural ones, with the average home-attic providing everything needed for a safe, warm and dry place to see for the day and raise a small pup. This is mostly because we are destroying their natural habitats, but also because our homes actually provide everything these animals need. Why would you go looking for something else when you've already found a home that was pretty much spot on for what you're looking for?
Norwich Animal News Clip: Turnover troubles Animal Control
Half of the employees at the Norwich Animal Control Department have been fired or left since July, and the county is investigating employee complaints about Critter Catcher Chris. Since Critter Catcher Chris took over in July, she has hired nine of the 18 people who now work under her. She had one vacancy as of Wednesday. Her boss, County Manager James the animal tamer, supports her. "I have full confidence that she is getting to the bottom of a number of issues that need to be explored in Animal Control, and that she is moving in the right direction," he announced. The animal tamer wouldn't elaborate. He said human resources staff has interviewed under oath every Animal Control employee, including Critter Catcher Chris, in response to employee complaints. Wildlife ruling party reporters are transcribing those interviews. He hopes to conclude the investigation into the department within a few weeks, he announced. Read on for more information about animal control in Norwich, Connecticut.
Based on what he has heard about those interviews, The animal tamer declared, Critter Catcher Chris is doing her job. He said the personnel office and the legal department review the case of every county worker who is fired. Some current employees are unhappy. In a confidential grievance letter to the county wild animal commissioners, Stacie The wild critter expert, an animal control officer, accused Critter Catcher Chris of ignoring the procedures for handling an injured hog that had fallen off a truck Jan. 4. Three animal control officers chased and caught the animal and returned it to the containment facility, which has a small barn. According to The wild critter expert's letter and Jeff The wild creature specialist, who lost his job at Animal Control on Jan. 20, Critter Catcher Chris had another employee drive the injured pig in a county vehicle to a slaughter house in Johnston County about a day after the animal was picked up off U.S. 13. Despite this there is no free Norwich animal services for wildlife in New London County.
The wild creature specialist, who had been an animal control officer for about 3 years, said Critter Catcher Chris at first wanted to take up a collection among employees to pay for the pig's slaughter, but she later agreed to pay the costs herself. "We laughed about it because they have never done that before," he announced. The wild creature specialist said employees never heard what happened to the pig after it was taken to New London County. In the letter, the wild critter expert accused Critter Catcher Chris of "unprofessional and unethical conduct." Critter Catcher Chris would not talk about the hog incident or The wild critter expert's letter, referring all questions to James The big boss, the county's human resources manager. Critter Catcher Chris did say, however, that it is county policy to hold livestock for 10 days to give the owner a chance to reclaim the animal. After 10 days, the county tries to find the animal a new home, such as a farm. If the livestock is injured, a veterinarian is called to the containment facility to examine the animal and determine whether it should be euthanized, she announced. Most Norwich pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Among the thousands of rodents and rodents picked up each year, the containment facility picked up 58 livestock animals last fiscal year. Critter Catcher Chris oversees a department with a $918,534 annual budget that is scheduled to move into a $4.1 million containment facility in the county's industrial wildlife management area in January. Animal Control responds to calls in Norwich and the county and operates the county's only public containment facility. The animal tamer said the hog incident is under review. He said the investigation into the department began about a week after The wild critter expert's Feb. 27 grievance letter. The wild critter expert has been employed at Animal Control since 1993. A week before she wrote the letter, she was demoted from the supervisory role of lead animal control officer to animal control officer. Her $30,048 salary didn't change. At least, this is what Norwich extermination companies think.
