I commonly extract dead animal carcasses from homes and property. The very animals that commonly invade houses die inside houses, and when they do, they create a very unpleasant odor as the carcass decays. The successful removal of deceased wildlife definitely requires experience and knowledge of building architecture and animal behavior. I've cut and pried open every nook and cranny imaginable to locate and remove rotting critter bodies. I am the best - I always find the animal, deodorize and decontaminate the area, and seal up the hole I've cut open. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Dead Animals page.

The day I burrowed into a house - My job is unique. Not only do I get to clean up animal carcasses (how cool is that!) in the oddest of places you can imagine, I even also get to act like animal themselves. Take the fact that I sniff around like a dog to detect where the smell is coming from. And if the animal chose to die somewhere like in the picture, I actually get to burrow and crawl like a rodent. Now I call that amazing!

Among the many difficult jobs that I have taken up, this was definitely one of them. The first time I looked at the hole I was supposed to crawl through, I did have second thoughts for a moment. What if I got stuck? But I was at work so there was to be no funny business. Pushing aside the sudden urge to call it a sick day, I breathed deeply, got into the hole and started crawling. The insides were the very description of a creepy, hollow passage and I would not have been surprised if right at that moment a ghost would have tried to play peek-a-boo with me.

Little did I know that there was a welcome party arranged for me inside, hosted by the resident maggots, fleas and cobwebs. Fighting my way through them and still sniffing to locate the carcass, I kept moving until I found what I was looking for – a dead opossum. And not just dead but dead as if a bulldozer had run over it, completely flattening out the poor chap. Since the hole was too small to pay my last respects to the dead soul, I quickly gathered the carcass in the garbage bag, cleaned the area and sprinkled around the deodorizer to get rid of the horrible smell.
