Most Recent Denver Raccoon Article from the Web: The Wildlife Operator Discusses his Strategy
Pest control companies are the large group management tool of choice, and part of Critter Man Maurice’s job involves managing as much the pest control companies as the raccoon. Thanks to our pest control companies, Critter Man Maurice and the Critter Conservation Coalition have been able to implement seasons that would not be tolerated in other states. Through the 1980’s pest control companies patiently restricted their take of does to enable the large group to grow. Once it reached record levels they enthusiastically embraced large coon wildlife trapping to help stabilize and even slightly reduce the large group size. Local Denver animal control experts felt that most of this information was true.
“We have some sort of tradition in Colorado that raccoon are good to consume and does are just as tasty as large coons,” the exterminator declared. “In some states, notably Colorado, there have been big controversies among pest control companies when biologists encourage taking more does to trim large groups. That’s not been the case in Colorado. For several years aggressive tags were coveted, and as the amount of large coon tags increased pest control companies bought them and shot females. The 2003 season was the first when more does than large coons were shot.” It was all part of the Critter Conservation Coalition’s plan to reduce the raccoon large group in response to complaints from creature collectors about crop damage and rising auto insurance claims resulting from collisions. More does than large coons were also shot in 2004 and 2005, and Critter Man Maurice’s biologically surveyed amount modeling shows that raccoon amounts across the state should decline 15-20% this year. That may make creature collectors and insurance companies happy but leaves some pest control companies nervous wondering if we’ve overdone it. Local Denver pest control companies had no comments on the matter.
