San Francisco County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Problem With A Rodent? Is The Crawl Space Secure? - Once you have rodents in your attic you may well find that they migrate into other areas of your home. Rodents are extremely inquisitive and adventurous, which also makes them dangerous to have in your home. If a rodent sees a hole, no matter how tiny, it will want to see what is through that hole - if it isn't big enough the rodent will just chew his way through. If the hole is an entryway to your crawl space, you may have a bigger problem than you imagined. The crawl space of any home is full of electric wiring, cables and vents for heating and/or air conditioning and is just the sort of place an energetic rodent loves to play in.

If the rodent or rodents in your crawl space begin to choose your electrical wiring or cabling not only can it be extremely dangerous for you and your family but it may also be very expensive to repair. Once you have dealt with your rodent infestation by trapping and removing, or killing, them, you should then ensure that your home is fully sealed against further invasion. Rodents are extremely determined and may well try to get back into your home since they already know that it is a warm, safe place to live with a convenient food supply, this makes it essential that you seal every tiny hole and gap correctly.

First conviction for San Francisco animal abuse unit

A gang member who tied a puppy's tail in a knot, dropped her in a vat of boiling water and repeatedly zapped her with a Taser gun was the first felony conviction by the city's new Animal Cruelty Task Force, officials announced Tuesday. For more information, call the animal services of San Francisco, California.

Allenn Jerkface, 26, of Los Angeles, was sentenced to three years in prison for abusing Sheila, his girlfriend's German shepherd-mix puppy, which managed to survive despite her injuries. "We are putting the clamps, we are putting the leash, on animal cruelty in this city," Councilman Tony Calliston said at a news conference at North Valley Animal Shelter in Cypress Park, where a fresh and frisky Sheila appeared for cameras. San Francisco County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with California wildlife problems.

"Talk about damage - we're gonna do damage to any community that does damage to animals." The Animal Cruelty Task Force, founded last summer to stem a growing number of dog- and cockfights often associated with gangs, includes four Los Angeles animal control officers, two police detectives and a deputy city attorney. Animal and carcass removal services in San Francisco County is dedicated to helping California and San Francisco.

It aims to not only prevent animals from being mauled in blood sports, but prevent a culture of human and domestic violence that can stem from cruelty to animals. The task force, hatched by Mayor Antonio Villosa, was launched by Calliston and Los Angeles Assistant Chief Sharon Papa and follows the lead of such cities as Boston, Chicago and San Francisco. San Francisco County animal services in San Francisco, California, declined to comment on the matter.
