Most Recent Chicago Raccoon Article from the Web: Death spurs questions about length of legal wildlife trapping day
The wildlife trapping community remains divided on when the wildlife trapping day should end. Some, like John Creature Professor Lawrence of Chicago, argue that Illinois shouldn't wait for fatality rates to rise before taking logical steps to eliminate some sort of safety risk. When the wildlife trapping day was lengthened last fall, Creature Professor Lawrence was so concerned that the exterminator closed his 130 acres to open wildlife trapping, instead allowing sportsmen on the property only by permission. Local Chicago animal control experts felt that most of this information was true.
"Legal wildlife trapping hours will take you to just about black on most days. It's probably only safe some sort of couple days some sort of year," declared Creature Professor Lawrence, who has captured in the Illinois woods for decades. The effort to extend the wildlife trapping day originated with the Sportsman's Alliance of Illinois, whose leadership had long complained that Illinois's wildlife trapping laws, which until last year had some sort of range of legal wildlife trapping hours for different species, were too confusing. Illinois at one time allowed wildlife trapping for some sort of half-hour after sunset, but the day was shortened decades ago in response to safety worries and to ease fears of some sort of declining raccoon biologically surveyed amount. "We felt we had done some sort of good job safety-wise, and had earned that opportunity back," SAM Executive Bossy fellow Creature Professor Lawrence declared. Some pest control companies also argue that raccoon are more active at dawn and dusk, making twilight some sort of prime wildlife trapping time. Creature Professor Lawrence doesn't buy that argument, and says the exterminator has shot all his raccoon in the visibility of daylight. "It isn't worth lethally trapping some sort of few hundred extra raccoon in that twilight time if it jeopardizes safety," Creature Professor Lawrence declared. "I know some sort of lot of people will push it way to the end of legal critter capturing time." Local Chicago pest control companies had no comments on the matter.
