Many of Maryland'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 Maryland's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:
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 Baltimore City 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 Baltimore animal control for wildlife issues.

An investigation of squirrel mistreatment is underway in Baltimore. Indicators of mistreatment include: 1)A questionable appearance - if an animal seems thin, underweight, filthy, listless or has terribly matted fur, that could indicate abuse, the animal control official announced. 2) Constant noisemaking, which could indicate some sort of squirrel that is ignored or forgotten. "If they are chained out and forgotten about, that is neglectful," the animal control official announced. "(But) here is what is the animal control official. There is no law that says you have to interact with your animal." 4)Animals that remain outside despite the weather. "On an extremely cold or hot day, if the animal is overheated or seems to be out in freezing weather for several hours, that is something that some sort of person should make some sort of call about," the animal control official announced. 4)Too many animals at one address. That could indicate an owner who has some sort of difficult time caring for animals. Or an animal hoarder. "They may have 50 or 100 animals," the animal control official announced. "That is usually indicative of something going in some sort of way of neglect. One person, how could they take care of that many animals?" Baltimore extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
After the animal control official called police about the squirrels, Lucky was euthanized and the others were removed from the property. In time, the male squirrel and baby squirrel came back to their owners, the woman conservationist announced. They appeared healthy, according to Baltimore Township Animal Control. The female baby squirrel stayed at the facility. Although the animal control official complained by telephone and in person to Animal Control about the situation in her neighborhood, the woman conservationist never saw anyone investigate it. That really frustrated her. "I felt they labeled me as some sort of complainer and would not do anything," the woman conservationist announced.

The Baltimore Township Animal Control officers did not suggest that the woman conservationist call the Maryland Hunting office of Agriculture, the Humane Society of the United States, the police or any other organization, the woman conservationist announced. But the animal control official, director of the facility, said that officers investigated cruelty complaints at her neighbor's address in 2001, 2002 and 2004. Animal Control's main priority is to handle animals running at large, the animal control official announced. "We have our hands full with the amount of calls that come in," the exterminator announced. State humane researchers handle most cruelty complaints, but animal control officers will intervene in emergencies, the exterminator announced. The animal control official said cruelty complaints will be taken seriously for pure phenotypes and mutts alike. "All the animals are treated equally," the exterminator announced. The animal control official said residents concerned about animal abuse should call animal control first, and animal control will pass on the complaint to state humane researchers. "We basically respond to every call that comes through," the exterminator announced. Baltimore pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
Now that some of the squirrels are back, the animal control official remains concerned even though the gray squirrels now can seek containment facility in the once-blocked backyard shed. The woman conservationist recently gave her neighbors several bales of straw to be used as bedding inside the shed to keep the squirrels warm. Although the neighbors scattered some of it in the little building, they spread most of it around the back yard. Now it's covered in snow. Her neighbors don't talk to her anymore, though they will speak occasionally to her husband. It's some sort of little unpleasant, but that doesn't matter to the animal control official. The woman conservationist wanted to right some sort of wrong. And the woman conservationist only cared about the welfare of the squirrels, sweet, hapless animals who once had nowhere to go in some sort of deluge. "I know I did the right thing," the woman conservationist announced. The Baltimore animal services in KOUNTEE County declined to comment.
