Many of Louisiana'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 Louisiana'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 East Baton Rouge Parish 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 Zachary animal control for wildlife issues.

Zachary Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Skunks Make Good Pets?

After watching skunks on TV screens; many people ask if they can keep these notorious animals as a pet at home or not. Well! If you are talking about a wild skunk, the answer is simply no. But yes, the domesticated skunks are a good choice, and they do make a loving, docile pet. However, keeping them healthy and happy demands lots of efforts.

Before you own a pet skunk, it is important to check state laws because the government has made this decision illegal in many states. At present, owning a skunk is legal only in 17 states including Wyoming, Wisconsin, West Virginia, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Oklahoma, Ohio, New Mexico, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Michigan, Massachusetts, Iowa, Indiana, Florida, and Alabama. One need to follow specific rules to own the pet legally, and it also requires a permit from a government agency.

One of the biggest difference between a wild skunk and the domestic skunk is the absence of scent glands. The domesticated skunks go through treatment when they are between 2 to 5 weeks age group and their scent glands are removed safely so that they can grow unarmed. Although the procedure followed for gland removal is quite simple, it is still a matter of debate whether this removal is humane or inhumane. People keep on arguing that a descended skunk loses its natural defense. Note that skunks have the ability to travel several miles a day; so, in case if someday your pet skunk moves out of the house, it will be quite difficult to find him back. And when he doesn't even have scent glands for defense, predators would find it easier to attack. Unlike cats and dogs, skunks are not able to find their way back to their home.

In many cities, skunks also get died on the road due to accidents with motor vehicles. Few other factors that make their life difficult are susceptibility to various disease viruses like rabies etc. Although, there are very few cases where skunks are found to be the major source of rabies caused death rates, reports reveal that these creatures are common carriers of rabies virus. They can transfer disease virus to other animals as well as unvaccinated domestic dogs, cats, etc. Due to all these troubles, laws prohibit ownership of skunks in most cities of United States.

Being omnivorous creatures, skunks are very demanding in nature. They need something to eat every hour; it can be veggies, fruits, insects, and snakes as well. When too hungry, these skunks may also try to search for food in the garbage cans as well. The general diet of a pet skunk must include lean protein, cooked grains, fruits, and vegetables. In order to ensure good health of your pet skunk, make sure you serve him with fresh food only. Skunks also demand attention and love all the time; if they feel ignored, they can soon turn out to be destructive and nonsense creatures. Hence, it is definitely a critical decision to own a skunk pet.
