Tarrant County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Should you use opossum traps?
There's an opossum in your yard - what do you do? Would you call a local wildlife control expert to come in and sort out the situation? These guys can be expensive, but they do know what they are doing. Would you use opossum traps to catch the little critter so that you can release it back into the wild? In some states, this is actually illegal, so you will want to check the local rules and regulations. Also, you will want to make sure that you are buying the right kind of opossum traps so that you can be sure you are not wasting any money and also to ensure that you do not injure the little guy. Of course, you could always just leave it well alone….

In reality, the lonely opossum is actually saving you a lot of hard work. It eats things like snails, slugs, snakes, mice, rats and other little things that will do lots of damage to your yard - snails eat leaves of the flowers and plants that you are growing, the rats carry disease, the mice leave droppings all over the place… Admittedly the opossum might be knocking your garbage can over, but you can always just make sure that lid is firmly shut by tying it with a strong rope or with bungee cords.

Usually, your local opossum will stay in your garden for long enough to get its fill of the bugs and rodents that are running around and then move on to complete its task elsewhere in the neighborhood. If it really isn’t bugging you too much, it wouldn’t hurt just to let the critter do its job!

"People have become more and more vigilant about reporting [rabid animals]," Da Dawg Show said. "They're not just burying a raccoon; they're calling us to test it." For more information, call the animal services of Tarrant County, Texas.

Da Dawg Show said there are many layers to rabies prevention other than keeping pets' vaccinations updated. Tarrant County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Texas wildlife problems.

"Another layer is not keeping your dog outside or not allowing your dog to be outside unsupervised," Da Dawg Show said. "If you are going to keep your dogs outside, you want to consider how you can enclose them, not only so they can't get out but so that a wild, rabid animal can't get in."
