This one is for the protection of the animals, not you.
We have been called to places where people have set traps, rebaited traps that we have set, all to the animals detriment.
We trap humanely, and relocate animals to safer areas for both the animal and you.
But lately we have seen some disturbing things.
We got a call to recover a skunk from an owner set trap that was baited with a peanut butter jar. Can you guess what we came to? The poor skunk had suffocated by the time we arrived.
People using the wrong bait that attracts far more neighborhood cats than raccoons or skunks.
Yes it will cost you some money to hire a professional, but if you just want to move the animal in a humane manner, please make the call.
