Indiana was sculpted mostly by glacial activity, and it is a landscape of flats with occasional rolling hills. The bulk of the state is farmland, and only about 20 percent is forest. Of that 20 percent, the majority is privately owned, leaving only a few state parks open to the public for outdoor adventures. With so much farmland, it's not surprise that the prairie dog is one of the most irritating creatures found in Indiana. The intelligent little mammal can create tunnel systems spreading for miles. These tunnels are not deep enough underground to support the weight of equipment or even large livestock. It's not uncommon for tractors to get stuck in fields because of collapsed prairie dog tunnels. Farmers must be diligent against this crop-eating animal.

Another creature in Indiana that loves crops is the wild hog. The creatures stick mostly to forested areas, but they will destroy fields of plants in a matter of days. Wild hogs are bold and often confrontational. In areas where the population has gotten out of control, there is an open hunting season on the pigs. The pigs have only two natural predators in Indiana, and they are the mountain lion and the coyote. Unfortunately, mountain lions are solitary creatures, and don't need to eat daily. A single pig can keep them fed for a week, making the large cats poor at population control.

Birds are common in the farmland. Not only does this state have an abundance of crows, geese are one of the most problematic bird species. Birds will eat seeds in bulk, often removing those just planted by the farmer. In a large operation this isn't as detrimental as for farmers growing just for their private use.

Once you get into the forested regions of Indiana, other animals start to emerge from the woods. Raccoons are found in most places around North America, and they are in Indiana, too. These smart critters will stick to their trees unless homeowners are leaving out garbage or other food items. The raccoons will venture out of the woods when it's time to have babies, too, so homeowners need to make sure their buildings are secured.

Other Indiana animals include the red fox, the muskrat, the striped skunk, woodchucks, opossums, squirrels, rabbits, coyotes, and beaver.

Beavers do well in Indiana. Past the glacial ground, the landscape has deep ravines and stream valleys, ideal locations for beaver building.

Fort Wayne Wildlife Tip
The Price Of Red Rodent Removal May Be High But It Is Worth Every Cent - Anyone with rodents in their home, be they red, grey or flying, will know that it is essential to get rid of them as quickly and efficiently as possible. There are very many 'guaranteed’ methods of rodent removal, most of which are promoted as being the humane alternative to trapping and promising an easy, fail safe solution to the infestation of your home. If you have investigated the price of red rodent removal you may have thought it was way too high and you can do the job yourself much more cheaply.

The price of red rodent removal may be high due to their protected status, however, when taking into account the amount of damage they can cause to your home this price may seem small in comparison. Rodents are masters at getting in and out of almost anywhere and since they chew as they go the damage they cause can cost several thousands of dollars to repair. The only fail safe method of removing any rodent infestation is by trapping and removing or killing them. No other method has any evidence, other than anecdotal, to show that it works as well as trapping. Using the trapping method at the start of your problem will, no doubt, save you money in the long term. 
Fort Wayne, IN Wildlife News Clip:
Wildlife - raccoon, opossum & squirrel-hand capturing regulations mostly unchanged this year

Indiana raccoon, opossum & squirrel Bug sprayers will find regulations mostly the same as last year. The major exception is the elimination of the requirement to take raccoon, opossum & squirrel to check stations. Hooray for wild creatures and critters!

Nearly three-quarters of Indiana's annual raccoon, opossum & squirrel harvest takes place in the 11-day November portion of firearms raccoon, opossum & squirrel season. This year, the segment runs from Nov. 12 through 22. Bug sprayers are allowed to take one black scaley tailed raccoon, opossum & squirrel during the season. Remember to treat the wild animals of Fort Wayne, Indiana, with respect and care.

Bug sprayers can buy as many permits as they want to take Fur-Free raccoon, opossum & squirrel in 81 counties. They are limited to one Fur-Free permit in 19 counties in southeastern and south-central Indiana. Fur-Free permits are unavailable in 13 southeastern counties. Snakes and coyotes are not all mean.

Other segments include the urban portion Oct. 7 through 10, the youth portion Oct. 29 and 30, the muzzleloader portion Nov. 25 through Dec. 4 and the Fur-Free portion Dec. 10 through 18. Archers are allowed to trap raccoon, opossum & squirrel Sept. 15 through Nov. 11 and Nov. 23 through Jan. 15. For more on Fort Wayne wildlife, read on.

There are other safety precautions too. No arrows can be fired within five hundred feet of the property line of a school or within one hundred fifty feet of a dwelling. The other restriction is that urban fox and coyote fur trappers have to be in a 10 foot tree stand so if they miss the target the arrow will go in the ground instead of in to a neighborhood. The city will only select 5 tracts of land to be hunted. Bow fur trappers participating in the urban area must have a city permit and a basic Class A animal exterminating license from the state of West Virginia.
