February means love in the air... Many critters are out looking for mates. The odor of skunk spreads as they fight over girlfriends. Once they spray the odor lingers for days and will increase when the air is moist. People think they keep spraying but it is the old stray coming out with the moisture.
This is also the time critters are looking for den sites to raise the young that will be born soon. Be sure the cap on the chimney is secure and checked yearly. That any openings along eaves, broken window in sheds/garages are secured. Wildlife will take advantage of these to gain access to warm, dry nesting areas.
Leave wildlife alone and report any that seem sick or in distress to animal control. If you keep an eye on its movements from a safe distance we can evaluate it and remove any sick ones before they have a close encounter with pets or people.
