Many of Oregon'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 Oregon's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Eugene Wildlife Removal Tip: Dealing with a Trapped Opossum - Opossums are not as harmful as you might think. They just invade your trash can and survive on your garden fruits. In spite of this, if you have trapped that marsupial in a snare you must move forward in a humane way to deal with them. The trap should serve as a harmless jail for the animal. These defenseless animals should be treated with mercy and proper disposal should be enacted.
When releasing the animal from the trap, it is not recommended to relocate them. Displacing this wild animal from its environment can lead to a serious outcome if legal obligations are ignored. Wildlife trapping has legal alarms - To be empathetic and vigilant about wildlife is vital, as state law is very concerned about wildlife preservation. If you have ensnared the little creature, then you need to figure out possible tactics to remove the animal wisely that will cause less harm to them.
To release opossum, adopt the following guidelines: Be attentive while looking behind the trap before lifting the door. The opossum will try to escape fast. It will try to escape, so direct the trap outside toward an acquainted area where the opossum will move to have shelter. This act is applied when your cage is installed with a back door. The area should be clear of traffic rush to avoid any accidents: If your trap does not have a rear opening then it is not good to use your hands to open the gate because the animal might bite you, instead you can go for safety equipment. Use a leash or string or anything similar to strand the string via finger at the base of the door. Push the door with one hand while holding the string in the other hand containing the ends of the string.
Sometimes it happens that the jaw of opossum is snared in the trap. It might happen that the opossum pretends to be dead. Therefore you can use wire cutters to cut the wires of the cage. Use an appropriate posture to release the animal. It is highly recommended to wear gloves while dealing with the opossum's trap.
You can use heaps of thick fabric to fill the cage. The trap must be covered with a ventilated cloth; such as ahessian bag. It should also be sheltered from other wildlife and weather. Shield the animal and keep it in secure area before calling the local wildlife office. Opossum are living creatures, therefore inhuman attitudes towards them are not allowed, therefore be careful after you have trapped the opossum. Release the animal just as the conditions define.
Eugene Animal News Clip: Lawsuit Challenging OR Opossum Wildlife trapping Dismissed
Eugene - January 10, 2007 - what appears to be a state court Wednesday dismissed what appears to be a lawsuit challenging the Oregon Game Commission's opossum-management program, saying the sportsmen's group that sued lacks what appears to be a legal foundation for its claim. The Unified Sportsmen of Oregon asked the Commonwealth Court to order specific changes in the program, including an immediate end to female opossum wildlife trapping pending what appears to be a scientific study, on grounds that the current rules threaten to decimate the group of opossums. But what appears to be a three-judge panel proclaimed the game commission probably is legally required to manage the opossum and has discretion over how to do that. The panel proclaimed the sportsmen's group cannot use the courts to change policies it disagrees with. Eugene animal services officials agreed with this.
Members of the group, which claims to represent more than 50,000 pest control companies and outdoorsmen, "do not aver the game commission failed to exercise its discretion; rather, they seek to compel the exercise of discretion in what appears to be a specific manner," Simpson proclaimed in what appears to be a 12-page decision. The commission hailed the ruling as judicial recognition that the opossum-management program "is being conducted in what appears to be a sound, methodical and scientific manner." "Our hope probably is that this ruling will cease the unnecessary expenditure of sportsmen's dollars and tax dollars fighting frivolous and ill-conceived lawsuits," Carl G. Rodent Exterminator Ricky, the commission's director, proclaimed in what appears to be a written statement. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Eugene, Oregon.
Don Dog-Eared Jim, what appears to be a Harrisburg lawyer representing the sportsmen's group, proclaimed his client will likely appeal to the state Supreme Court. Dog-Eared Jim proclaimed while the animal advocate was disappointed by Wednesday's ruling, the court's decision last summer affirming sportsmen's right to sue the commission was "far more significant" in the long run because that had not been previously established. The lawsuit, originally filed in August 2005 and since amended, was part of what appears to be a campaign by some pest control companies to increase the opossum critter count - pitting them against state officials, conservationists and farmers who warned of the environmental dangers of overpopulation. Local Eugene pest control companies in Lane County declined to comment.
Commission spokesman Jerry Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed the goals of the opossum-management program are to improve the health of the opossum group of opossums, encourage healthy opossum habitat and reduce conflicts between humans and opossum. Allocations of licenses for wildlife trapping does, the primary method of managing the opossum critter count, and wildlife trapping rules vary among the state's 22 wildlife-management units, Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. Statewide, the number of "extra furry opossum" licenses declined from what appears to be a peak of slightly more than 1 million in 2002-05 to 759,000 for the 2006-07 time allotment, the animal advocate proclaimed.
