Many of Minnesota'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 Minnesota'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 Anoka 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 Coon Rapids animal control for wildlife issues.

Coon Rapids Wildlife Removal Tip: Why Do Skunks Have A White Stripe?

A Skunk is definitely one of the easiest animals to identify from a far distance. One of the reasons for this is the fact that it has white stripe which can be very noticeable. The major question still remains why does it have such stripe? You are at the right place as this post will be exposing you to some of the reasons why skunks have been known to have a white stripe.

What You Need To Know

The first and most important thing to note is the fact that there are other animals which have stripes as well. These could be tigers, zebras and so on. One of the major ways they put their stripes to use is for protection. They use them in having other animals that they may want to hunt confused. In a nutshell, they use their stripes to survive.

For instance, tigers are very effective while hunting for animals as they have the ability to blend into grass. This makes them not to be easily noticed by the animals they plan hunting. Skunks on the other hand, have always proven to be different animals as they don't hide or make use of their stripes to hunt other animals.

Why They Possess White Stripes

Most people believe that they have such white stripes for designs and decoration. While such may be correct to some extent, it has been discovered that these animals have white stripes which they make use of to notify other animals which may want to come after them of danger. With the white stripes there, their predators can easily sense the danger that is ahead of them should they try and attack these creatures (skunks).

What danger?

Skunks have spray which is characterized by an offensive smell. Such smell is not only feared by human beings but also other animals which may be planning to harm them. The white stripe is always there to remind you of the smell that these animals do possess when they release such spray (anal gland secretions).

Although this helps to keep them protected from those animals that may want to harm them, it should be noted that it only works for animals which possess very high sense of smell. However, for the ones which can't smell very well, they will always attack them no matter what. An example of such of animals is owl.
