Prevention Bat Control Roosting Bird Control ... Canada Geese Control More than 75 percent of the U.S. population lives in urban areas. While the growth of cities and subdivisions displaces some wildlife, many species continue to live in the habitat available in parks, undeveloped parcels of land and vacant lots, along stream and river corridors and in our backyards. Their presence can provide recreational and educational viewing opportunities. For many people, especially children, viewing wildlife in the backyard is exciting. People and wildlife and peacefully coexist in most situations. However, there may be times when conflicts arise. Most of the common problems associated with urban wildlife (for example, squirrels in the attic, skunks under the deck, or raccoons rooting through the garbage) can be avoided by implementing a few simple measures.

    Pawster Park Pooch Playground is located in Foster Park West on Winchester Road, just off Bluffton Road. It is a public facility owned and operated by the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department. All dogs (except female dogs in heat) are welcome subject to the rules and regulations below. History In 2000, a dedicated group of local dog-lovers approached the Parks and Recreation Department with the concept of developing a dog park in Fort Wayne. The group conducted research on similar facilities in other communities and pledged their energy towards raising funds to construct the facility. In 2001, City ordinance was revised to allow unleashed dogs inside the confines of the dog park and a seldom used baseball diamond in Foster Park West was removed and dedicated for Pooch Playground. Opening and Hours Pawster Park Pooch Playground opened Memorial Day weekend.

    The Coyote: A Pet Predator Historically, coyotes were most commonly found on the Great Plains of North America. Their range now extends from Central America to the Arctic. Except for Hawaii, coyotes live in all of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. In spite of being hunted and trapped for more than 200 years, more coyotes exist today than when the U.S. Constitution was signed. Hardly any animal in America is more adaptable to changing conditions than the coyote. Coyotes can live just about anywhere. They are found in deserts, swamps, tundra, grasslands, brush, and dense forests, from below sea level to high mountains. They have also learned to live in suburbs and cities like Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, and Denver.

    Put Wildlife to Work For You
    Did you know that the insects you use pesticides to eliminate are actually savored by many of our local wildlife? For example, aphids are favorites of songbirds and grubs are like snacks to skunks. And, amazingly, a single bat can consume more than 3,000 mosquitoes each night. Put wildlife to work for you! Please try to avoid using herbicides or pesticides on your lawn or in your garden. Not only can these products be dangerous to you, your children, and your pets, but they can also poison wildlife or interfere with their reproduction. Pesticides affect more than just the creatures they are intended to target. The insects that pesticides target are eaten by birds, which in turn are eaten by larger birds and some mammals.

    Cap Chimneys All chimneys should be capped to prevent entry by wild birds and mammals. The average cost of capping a chimney is far less than the average cost of removing trapped wildlife. Chimney caps also prevent sparks from leaving the chimney, and are therefore a safety device as well. Urban Wildlife Have Set Up Housekeeping. What To Do.

    ... it's Fark! Web Main Please Bring the Cat in the House October 12, 2004 You cat may not be as safe as you think it is in broad daylight. I took this yesterday morning on my street. This fellow (I think it was a guy) was hanging out on my street, not at all dissuaded from his loops around the street by people coming and going. Though I didn't see anyone walking their dogs for the twenty minutes I saw him out there. Of course I wasn't going to walk my dog at that time.

    As I come home from work at 3am on Friday nights, I always see "him." Dude doesn't even care that I walk by him. He just stands there and looks at me. Posted by Dan at October 13, 2004 03:07 AM That fine specimen of Canis latrans looks like a juvenile, perhaps an offspring from the pair that I saw padding past your house last time I house-sat for you? The timing's right as they usually detach from their parents in late summer and begin kicking it solo. In addition to bringing pets inside, be sure to eliminate or secure any sources they can scavenge for food such as garbage cans, barbecue grills, compost piles, and such. Get rid of water sources as well. It can't hurt to remove fallen fruit from your yard, and eliminating or minimizing opportunities for rodents to breed on your property is a good precaution to take as well. Removing stands of brush or overgrown ground cover helps, too.

    Basic Trap Designs When Not to Trap ... Capturing a Wary or Trap-Smart Animal Figure 1.
    The homeowner who is dealing with a human/wildlife conflict often uses a cage trap, also referred to as a live trap. The common cage trap used to capture mammals works when an animal steps on the treadle, or pan, located inside the trap. When the treadle is tripped, it causes the closing of a door, or doors, at the end(s) of the trap.
    (Drawing by Jenifer Rees.) Appropriate times to trap an animal in or around a home or property include emergency situations, the removal of a targeted problem animal, or when trapping is the only practical solution. Basic Trap Designs Modern traps fall into two main categories: quick-kill type traps and live-holding traps. Kill-type traps are designed to quickly kill the captured animal, much like a common snap-trap used on house mice. Live-holding traps can be separated into cage traps, foothold traps, and snares.

      We always look forward to seeing that first Robin in our yard as the official master of ceremonies welcoming Spring. The buds come out, the wildlife is abundant, and everyone will be spend more time outside. Including our pets. Today's cat owners face an important decision about letting their cat outdoors or providing a happy indoor environment. In this day and age, birds and wildlife face more obstacles than ever before to survive. Several songbird populations are declining at a rapid pace. Cats are often blamed for killing birds and wildlife, especially as felines become an increasingly popular pet in our ever-demanding lives. Research shows that cats, however, aren't the primary killers. According to CatWatch (Apr 1998) research proved that wild animals such as raccoons, skunks, fox, and opossums take a greater toll on the songbird population. Even greater, habitat destruction by humans (such as clearing trees and developing land) is ever increasing, effecting millions of acres of prime bird habitat.

    Allergies in Dogs
    One of the most common conditions affecting dogs is allergy. In the allergic state, the dog's immune system "overreacts" to foreign substances (allergens or antigens) to which it is exposed. These overreactions are manifested in three ways. The most common is itching of the skin, either localized (one area) or generalized (all over the dog). Another manifestation involves the respiratory system and may result in coughing, sneezing, and/or wheezing. Sometimes, there may be an associated nasal or ocular (eye) discharge. The third manifestation involves the digestive system, resulting in vomiting or diarrhea.
    Types of Allergies
    There are five known types of allergies in the dog: contact, flea, food, bacterial, and inhalant. Each of these has some common expressions in dogs, and each has some unique features.
    Contact Allergy
    Contact allergy is the least common of the five types of allergy. They result in a local reaction of the skin. Examples of contact allergy include reactions to flea collars or to types of bedding, such as wool. If the dog is allergic to such substances, there will be skin irritation and itching at the points of contact. Removal of the contact irritant solves the problem. However, identifying the allergen can require some detective work.
    Flea Allergy
    Flea allergy is common in dogs. A normal dog experiences only minor irritation in response to flea bites, often without any itching. On the other hand, the flea allergic dog has a severe, itch-producing reaction when the flea's saliva is deposited in the skin. Just one bite causes such intense itching that the dog may severely scratch or chew itself, leading to the removal of large amounts of hair. There will often be open sores or scabs on the skin, allowing a secondary bacterial infection to begin. The area most commonly involved is over the rump (just in front of the tail).
