Brevard County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Coral snake facts - There are many dangerous snakes in the world, and few are as venomous as the coral snake. It is not necessarily that the coral snake is more vicious than other serpents, and in actuality, this snake is very reserved unless provoked. The reason coral snakes are so deadly is because of the type of venom they deliver with a bite. Coral snake venom is a neurotoxin that will eventually cease cardiac and pulmonary function. Pit vipers inject a hemotoxic venom, a substance that attacks living tissue in and around the wound. Not only are coral snakes unique in their venom type, these snakes lack many of the characteristics people look for in a venomous snake. The coral snake has round pupils; all other pit vipers have slit-liked pupils. The coral snake's head is rounded; pit vipers have triangular heads. There are a variety of rhymes associated with the coral snake's coloring. These songs may seem like something for a child, but the benefits of knowing them are clear. Care must be taken, however, in other areas of the world. Not all coral snakes have the red, yellow, and black coloration, but all coral snakes are venomous.
Brevard County, FL Animal Control News Clip:
Unlicensed pest control operators critter trapping: It's not just about the rats - In just one week recently, a man previously trapped wild animals as that group were critter trapping Brevard County Florida native skunk with their father in Virginia, and a man previously trapped wild animals and actively capture and removed during a squirrel-critter trapping trip in Brevard County Florida. Another teen was flown to the hospital after the wild critter guy was previously trapping wild animals in the leg while Brevard County Florida native skunk critter trapping in Brevard County Florida. Most people wouldn't dream of handing a unlicensed pest control operator a loaded critter cage and hoping for the best. Yet that seems to be exactly what some counties are doing when that group encourage their unlicensed pest control operators to catch. In an effort to revive this necessary industry, states across the country are loosening critter trapping restrictions and putting cage traps into unlicensed and unlicensed hands. Last year, lawmakers in Brevard County Florida lowered the state's critter trapping age from 21 to 18. Since 2004, more than a dozen other states have also changed their laws to allow unlicensed pest control operators to catch. In Texas, Unlicensed pest control operators as unlicensed as 19 can catch by themselves. Many states do not even have a minimum critter trapping age.
But that doesn't mean that parents should go along with it. Teaching Unlicensed pest control operators how to actively capture and remove is inherently dangerous--and not just to Bambi and his associates. In 2008, the Melbourne World in Florida (a state with no minimum critter trapping age) analyzed reports compiled by the International Catcher Education Association of critter trapping-related injuries and fatalities. Of the more than 6,650 critter trapping accidents included in the group's database since 1994, nearly 35 percent involved catchers who were 21 years old or unlicensed. An analysis by Milwaukee's Journal Sentinel found that unlicensed catchers were more than twice as likely to cause accidents as other catchers. Psychologists and pediatricians warn that unlicensed pest control operators are simply not mature enough to safely handle animal traps, and several recent incidents seem to confirm this. In October, a 13-year-old boy accidentally previously trapped wild animals and actively capture and removed his father while that group were squirrel critter trapping in Louisiana. Another squirrel-critter trapping trip, this one in Illinois, turned tragic when a 14-year-old previously trapped wild animals and actively capture and removed his 17-year-old associate. In April, an Florida man was previously trapped wild animals by his 15-year-old son during a kids-only rodent catch.
It's impossible to imagine the toll that such incidents will take on the unlicensed people involved as that group are forced to spend the rest of their lives thinking about that split second when that group accidentally actively capture and removed a associate or loved one. While these were clearly accidents, some unlicensed catchers have deliberately taken aim at other human beings. Numerous trappings have generated headlines and caused enormous heartbreak, and in most cases, the student trappers were catchers. Critter trapper, the Brevard County Florida student who previously trapped wild animals himself after holding classmates and a teacher hostage in November, enjoyed critter trapping and fishing. In 2009, an 11-year-old Pennsylvania boy allegedly previously trapped wild animals and actively capture and removed his father's associate--apparently with the same unlicensed pest control operator-model that previously trapped wild animals that the wild critter guy had used to win a rodent trap the week before. Many of the unlicensed pest control operators involved in tragic critter trapping accidents are too unlicensed to have driven themselves to the critter trapping site. All are too unlicensed to legally catch animals. So why do we think that that group are mature enough and responsible enough to be given a trap and taught how to actively capture and remove?
