Nueces County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Should you use opossum traps? (
Would you know what to do if you were to find an opossum in your yard? Would you consider using opossum traps to catch the critter yourself? Would you call a local wildlife control professional to give you a helping hand? Would you leave it to its own devices? There really isn't a right or wrong answer to the question - what should I do if I find an opossum in my yard - there are arguments for and against all of the above suggestions. It is usually not a good idea to try and catch the creature yourself - in some states it is illegal to trap and release certain wild animals. On top of this, you don't want to risk injuring the animal by not getting a trap that is big enough or setting it up wrong, wasting your money by getting the wrong bait, or wasting your time by putting the traps in the wrong places. Calling wildlife professional is a good idea if you really want to get rid of the creature, for example, if you don't want to use opossum traps but it is causing a nuisance by knocking the lid off your garbage can and strewing litter all over the place.

You can, of course, just leave the animal to its own devices. In reality, you could tie the garbage can lid down and leave the opossum to sort out the REAL problems in your yard, for example, letting it eat the snakes, rats, mice and snails or slugs. These creatures are going to cause more damage than the opossum will, and the creature actually eats these things. In short - this little dude might actually be doing you a favor!

Animal Services - Cat virus hits Corpus Christi Animal Shelter

A virus that is deadly for cats forced the Pueblo Animal Shelter to lock down part of it's building over the past several days. The good news is that the cats there now are healthy, but the bad news is that this is the second outbreak this year. For more information, call the animal services of Corpus Christi, Texas.

The virus is called Panleukopenia. Shelter managers think a couple of stray cats brought the virus into the shelter. They said they would like to be able to hold and isolate stray cats longer, but they said they can not because they get so many cats, and do not have enough space. Nueces County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Texas wildlife problems.

Tammy Stevens from Pueblo Animal Services said, "That's why we just shut the whole thing down so we make sure that we're gonna catch it where it sits because we don't have any other. We don't have any other way to do it." Animal and carcass removal services in Nueces County is dedicated to helping Texas and Corpus Christi.

If your cat has been vaccinated it will not catch the virus. Warning signs include vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. Contact your vet for more information on it. Nueces County animal services in Corpus Christi, Texas, declined to comment on the situation.



Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (361) 853-4098, and if you need wildlife removal service in Nueces County, call C2 Wildlife Removal: 361-356-3717.
