At Wild Science Solutions, we offer humane professional critter trapping and removal services in Holly Springs, North Carolina and the surrounding areas. As a biologist-led service, we believe critter trapping should be conducted humanely. Below are a few reasons why.
- Risk of pain, injury, or death. Just like us, critters can experience pain. Inhumane traps, such as leg-hold and body-gripping traps, will cause severe pain and suffering to the trapped animal. Trapping an animal can cause injuries such as broken bones and damaged muscles, and even shock. When injured, the trapped critter will also be more prone to dehydration, hunger, and extreme heat exposure. At Wild Science Solutions, we advocate for and use safe, non-lethal traps such as exclusion devices and repeater traps.
- Legal requirements. Many states have laws regulating animal trapping and require it to be done humanely. For instance, North Carolina has listed the Carolina northern flying squirrel as an endangered species, thus prohibiting hunting seasons, trapping seasons, or the use of lethal traps on them. These laws are in place to conserve wildlife and ensure they are not subjected to unnecessary suffering. Furthermore, any violations of wildlife conservancy laws could result in fines and other penalties.
- It’s a just cause. Finally, humane critter trapping is more ethical and responsible. It demonstrates respect for the animals and their well-being, besides helping improve the public perception of critter trapping. Using humane methods can also help to minimize the risk of non-target animals being caught in traps, thus preventing unwarranted losses of pets or keystone species.
We are a biologist-led wildlife removal service; thus, we are committed to humane critter trapping procedures. We always ensure that we relocate critters to their natural habitats upon removal whenever possible, thus helping preserve their numbers. Furthermore, we always go above and beyond for all our clients. Feel free to contact us today.
