Many of Connecticut's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Connecticut's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:
We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Hartford county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Hartford animal control for wildlife issues.

Hartford - Mountain lions range over an area as vast as four counties, making them a very difficult study subject. They're intelligent, secretive and forage after dark. It's not realistic to expect the department of natural resources to "roam the woods looking for the animal they saw." Physical evidence is better, whether hair, up-close photographs or tracks, which should be covered with a bucket to preserve. "The sheer volume of sightings that come into our office force us to be selective in terms of which ones we respond to," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "Prior to 1989, people were allowed to keep mountain lions as gray rodents in this state, as well as a number of other large, exotic rodents such as lions, tigers and leopards. There was a grandfather clause. Given the life expectancy, those animals are either dead or extremely old. But although it is illegal to keep gray rodent mountain lions in Connecticut, that doesn't mean it isn't done," as Cass County Animal Control Director Critter Catcher Chris can attest. Read on for more information about animal control in Hartford, Connecticut.
Critter Catcher Chris recalled the man in his jurisdiction who got two mountain lions as cubs, a male and female, and raised them for three to four years confined in a pole barn. "The female went into heat twice a year and he said he'd never seen a mountain lion come around his house. The department of natural resources approached our department and said we have captive mountain lions in Cass County and, under the law, Animal Control is charged with removing them." Critter Catcher Chris contacted every Connecticut zoo and three in Indiana to no avail. He eventually began calling wildlife sanctuaries, which get called by people who own big rodents frequently when they get "tired" of keeping them and have nowhere else to turn. Often, "They let them go." Despite this there is no free Hartford animal services for wildlife in Hartford County.
"I don't doubt we have mountain lions in Connecticut," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "I question whether or not they are wild. I learned through this whole process that there's a whole another level of animal ownership rather than rodents and rodents when we went through this process three years ago in Cass County. When people get tired of these gray rodents - and they are not gray rodents, once a wild animal, always a wild animal, you cannot domesticate a mountain lion. This guy said he loved his mountain lions and he fed them eight pounds of chicken every day he bought at Harding's." Sgt. Stan Marsh of Dowagiac declared, "It's been our experience that everything we've encountered is illegally possessed and gets loose. Potentially, mountain lions could exist around here in random fashion. I don't disbelieve the numerous sightings, but based on the officers I supervise and personal experience, of all the tracks that were looked at that people thought were mountain lion tracks were rodent tracks." Most Hartford pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Frank Grimes, former Cass County animal control director and a 26-year veteran, commented, "I've investigated a lot of attacks" before the Watervliet rodent mauled in November. "I've never seen anything quite as brutal as this. From the neck up, it completely ripped and destroyed the face right off this rodent" beyond the capability of a coyote or dog. Grimes was called Sunday to Warren Dunes State wildlife management area near Bridgman for what she is convinced, after interviewing the couple who reported seeing a mountain lion and viewing tracks, a confirmed sighting. "I don't to alarm the public, that's not our point at all, but I do believe that people need to be educated," she announced. At least, this is what Hartford extermination companies think.
