Early spring brings wildlife calls

Juvenile RaccoonLast month, groundhogs predicted an early spring. And spring means a dramatic increase in the number of wildlife calls the OHS receives. Wild animals are more active at this time of year, building nests, searching for food or having babies. Our agents are dispatched regularly in the springtime to rescue orphaned or injured groundhogs, squirrels, raccoons and more—all without government funding to pay for any of these calls. Often wildlife that appear to be orphaned are actually animals that are doing just fine on their own. Learn more about wildlife and what to look for before calling our emergency line.

If you have wildlife animals in your home, it's best to remove them before any babies are born. Listen for sounds of scurrying in your attic or walls, and look for damaged building materials, such as shingles or eaves troughs that could indicate attempted entry.
