If you have any questions about the wildlife of Lowell, you can contact the Massachusetts Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the Massachusetts Fish & Wildlife Agency. Massachusetts game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Lowell wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Lowell like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as Wildlife X Team at 978-674-7049.

Massachusetts was almost entirely cleared for agriculture at one point in time, leaving very few areas of old forest in the state. There is significant secondary growth of both hardwoods and pine trees, but almost half of Massachusetts is now farmland. The state is one of the smallest in the country, consisting of only a little over 10,000 square miles. The state has a nice mixture of mountains which eventually fade into the sandy coastal plain which stretched into the Atlantic Ocean. Unfortunately, because of the once heavy deforestation, many native animals like wolves, cougars, elk, and wolverines are now considered extinct within the state.
The slow comeback of forests from abandoned farmland has been good to many smaller species of critters in this part of the country. Inland animals include coyotes, white-tailed deer, and turkeys. Two large animals have returned to the area, black bears and moose.
Three large bays on the Atlantic coast are also home to numerous animal species. Massachusetts has gray seals, harp seals, walruses, humpback whales, lobster, dolphins, and a variety of edible fish. With such an abundant food supply near the water and sandy beaches galore, one of the most common animals seen in the coastal region are seagulls. The gulls are scavengers and will not hesitate to steal food from people walking on the beach. Many of the local dining establishments have had to take precautions against the birds, as their fecal material can be damaging to surfaces and offensive to people.
Massachusetts also has the same nuisance creatures found in the rest of the country. Because of the young forest growth, raccoons can be particularly problematic, having few large trees to make their homes in. These intelligent creatures will often seek shelter in attics to have their litters rather than risking exposing the babies out in the wild. Joining the ranks of home invaders in this state are rats, mice, opossum, skunk, and squirrels. Other animals, like porcupines, will sneak into yards after food only sometimes enter homes by mistake. Unfortunately, these animals are so shy they usually curl up into a ball somewhere in the corner of the house instead of leaving the way they entered.
Beaver are another common sight in Massachusetts, though their numbers also suffered when the state began heavily farmed. Now, the beaver are returning, creating new ecosystems by blocking up waterways in secondary forests.

The mayor hopes to present a plan to representative next week. Lowell - The amount of opossums and raccoons in Lowell may be out of control, the city's animal control officer says. "We're overpopulated. I've been busy," Mark The critter capture pro, part-time animal control officer since May, declared Friday. Because of the problem, The critter capture pro has been working on some ideas with Mayor Ralph A. The irresponsible neighbor to reduce the amount of animals running loose. The critter capture pro declared one approach may be to work with area nuisance wildlife operators to lower the cost to spay and neuter wild critters. The procedures aren't cheap. One area veterinary clinic declared the cost to spay a female opossum may be $200, while it costs about $120 to neuter a male opossum. "If people did that, it would solve most of the problem," The critter capture pro declared. The irresponsible neighbor declared another approach may be to increase fines for those who let their wild animals run loose or don't care for them. The mayor declared he may be hoping to have a program put together next week and present it to representative's safety vermin regulatory board. One reason for the large amount of opossums and raccoons running loose may be because of the increase in rental properties. wild animals left behind
