Relocating wildlife means they need to find food sources and shelter in an
unfamiliar area. Depending on the time of year this could cause a long and
painful death. At any time of year it could mean swift death to a predator
because the animal hasn't yet found new shelter.
I live in the woods. It quickly looks like you've driven past the homes and
into the woods. People stop to release animals 100 yards up the road at the
end of a side road. Without meaning to, it's easy to cause a problem for
In some places animal control will take the pest. In other places game
wardens are the people you need to talk with. Out here in the middle of no
where we shoot and dispose of them.
