Inhumane Treatment by Many Pest Control Operators

It's that time of year when raccoons, possums, squirrels, skunks, deer are nursing their young. Many people discover that these animals have taken up residence in their attics, garages, sheds, etc.and will call pest control operators to remove them.
In recent weeks, the Society has received complaints that nursing raccoons and squirrels have been trapped, taken away and the babies are left to die.
Mother raccoons have extremely strong maternal instincts and mourn for their babies when they are removed.
Please be patient - if you allow Mom and her babies to stay together, when they are old enough, all of them will leave.
