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 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 Montgomery 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 Rockville animal control for wildlife issues.

Rockville Wildlife Removal Tip: What do wildlife rehabilitators do with pigeons?

For many of us, living in busy cities, pigeons are the closest that we come to wildlife. So, what is done by wildlife rehabilitators when these birds are brought to their sanctuaries? It depends on where you take them, it seems. Many wildlife rescue centers are run by animal lovers, to the majority of these people the fact that a pigeon is seen as a pest by most people would not hinder them from trying to help. State run facilities would probably not assist you if you bring an injured pigeon to their center.

In some countries there are volunteers who run pigeon rescue centers, you can post on their website if you see an injured pigeon and they will send a volunteer to rescue it. The birds are taken to a central location where they are treated before being released back into the wild.

What to do if you see and injured bird

Depending on where you see the bird and how serious the injury is, you can attempt to catch it and take it to a rehabilitation center. If you have a large enough box or paper bag to transport it in, you can approach it slowly and see whether it would allow you to touch it. You can carefully pick it up and place it in the container. You could also attempt to throw a blanket or jacket over it, this might make it easier to handle. Do not attempt to catch the bird of you are not wearing the correct clothing, pigeons can scratch you or peck at you and this could lead to infection.

Who to phone

The easiest option would be to pull out your smartphone and start googling. There are various apps or websites available that should be able to direct you towards the nearest sanctuary that will be able to assist you. Do not just drive to the closest vet or wildlife sanctuary, they will, more often than not, show you the door or simply dislocate the pigeon's neck. Google contains a wealth of information; it will point you in the right direction and will supply you with a number that you can phone. ALWAYS PHONE. To save yourself needless energy, phone the sanctuary and enquire whether they would be willing to assist.

What will happen to the pigeon?

Once you have located a sanctuary that is willing to help you, they will inspect the bird in order to ascertain how serious the injuries are. If it is not immediately apparent what the issue is they might take an x-ray and take it from there. If the sanctuary feels that they can help, they will take the pigeon off of your hands and nurse it back to health before releasing it back into the wild.
