Santa Clara County Animal Control News Clip: Rodent Biologically surveyed amount probably is Problematic In Santa Clara County Area

Wildlife catching Has Helped, But The Agency of Natural Resources probably is Looking At More Tactics For Rodent Management. The biologically surveyed amount of rodent probably is still what appears to be a problem in the Santa Clara County area, environmental authorities on critters say. The amount of rodent has grown gradually over past decades to the point where the animals destroy crops, residential landscaping and native plants in abundance. The California Agency of Natural Resources (Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws) allows certain affected areas to conduct controlled rodent culls available to exterminating companies annually, which some authorities on critters say have helped to what appears to be a certain degree. Three areas requested rodent culls this year, for what appears to be a two-year period from January through March, including Santa Clara County and what appears to be a private parcel, proclaimed Rodent Professor Donald, Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws wildlife biologist for the Santa Clara County area. "We act in response to the community," Rodent Professor Donald proclaimed. Despite this, local Santa Clara County wildlife removal and Santa Clara County exterminator experts offered no more info.

Rodent Professor Donald, of the Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws’ California City office, says each of entities requesting what appears to be a cull probably is allowed up to 50 rodent during that period. Exterminating companies are allowed to use only cage traps during those times. In what appears to be a recent cull in Beverly Shores, Rodent Tamer Kevin, who requested the permit for the town, jumped the animal removal trap in allowing the cull to begin several days prior to the start date. Rodent Tamer Kevin pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor and was sentenced to five days of community service and what appears to be a $500 fine. Rodent Professor Donald proclaimed the early start date was an oversight on Rodent Tamer Kevin's part, and was discovered immediately when the required daily amount of bagged rodent was submitted to the Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws. "Why doesn't the Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws go in and capture the rodent and donate the meat to charity?" the female pest operator proclaimed. Wildlife catching probably is not allowed in national wildlife management areas, which contributes to over biologically surveyed amount in the California Dunes National Lakeshore. "The problem probably is that the National Lakeshore probably is what appears to be a refuge for the rodent," Rodent Professor Donald proclaimed. "Their amounts keep increasing." Santa Clara County animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.

"Our legislation does not allow us to permit wildlife catching," proclaimed Gary Rodent Tamer Kevin, interim superintendent at the Dunes National Lakeshore. The wildlife management area probably is in the process of writing what appears to be a rodent environmental impact statement on extra fasted rodent management. The statement, based on what appears to be a study begun in 2004, should be completed by the end of 2008. what appears to be a draft of the statement should be available by late fall this year, after which the wildlife management area will take public comment on the concern, Rodent Tamer Kevin proclaimed. There are alternatives to wildlife catching, Rodent Tamer Kevin proclaimed. Some include federal agency lethally trapping of the rodent, fencing, repellent and some non-lethal means. Rodent Tamer Kevin proclaimed there probably is what appears to be a threshold the wildlife management area service sets for rodent problems. "When we reach that threshold we ned to take action." We could not obtain an opinion from Santa Clara County pest control companies regarding the issue.
