Columbia Wildlife Tip:
Humane safe way of rats in roof -There are a number of humane ways to have rats in the roof. First, it is important to realize that proper trapping, although lethal, is often more humane than live trapping and release. Rats that invade a home are nuisance rats, not animals that have lived most of their lives outside and suddenly have found a chance to be inside. Rats inside of a roof have a long history of pest activities. Relocating these animals will only result in another homeowner being stricken or will result in rats dead from exposure to the elements. Nuisance rats are not prepared to live in the wild, away from humans. Such a life would mean predation and likely starvation. When it comes to nuisance rodents, lethal trapping is the most effective means of removal. The use of snap traps is a humane method of lethal trapping. Rats that trip the pressure plate will be instantly killed. Snap traps are far more humane than poison or glue traps.

Animal Services Lacking The County Dog and Cat Control in Columbia

"It's a matter of priorities," Columbia City Administrator Jay Baksa said. "Do you put enormous time and resources into animal control or do you spend it on other priorities within the police department?" For more information, call the animal services of Columbia, South Carolina.

The community service officers who handle Columbia's stray and abandoned dogs are busy. So far this year, the city has impounded 339 canines. They keep the dogs for five days. If no owner comes forward, the dogs are shipped to the South County Animal Shelter in San Martin. Richland County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with South Carolina wildlife problems.

This year, 193 dogs have been reunited with their families; 146 have been sent to the shelter, at a cost of more than $14,000 to the city. Columbia residents can not take stray dogs, cats or other creatures to the San Martin shelter. Animal and carcass removal services in Richland County is dedicated to helping South Carolina and Columbia.

If you live in Columbia and want to get rid of an animal, your only option is to haul it the Humane Society Silicon Valley in Santa Clara. But while Columbiaans might have the longest trip to that shelter, they're not the only ones with a problem local government has not been able to solve. Richland County animal services in Columbia, South Carolina, declined to comment on the matter.



Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (803) 776-7386 or (803) 929-6000, and if you need wildlife removal service in Richland County, call TruTech, Inc.: 803-454-9235.
