"Your Options Concerning Nuisance Wildlife" 1. "When it comes to dealing with Nuisance Wildlife, you typically have 3 choices. You can do nothing which is the worst option because the situation will not change. The attacks and killings will continue. The economic and environmental damage to your property will continue. This burying the head in the sand approach and hoping the problem will go away is based in Denial and not wanting to realize the seriousness of the problem." 2. "If you are thinking that you might want to attempt to trap the animal yourself, I encourage you to consider the following: If you are unfamiliar with the animal's habits, travel patterns, travelways, the many communicable diseases they carry and how to effectively remove them, you can wind up educating the animal or worst yet, being bitten or attacked.(Read in my Blog about the life threatening Hydatid Disease that infects numerous species of wildlife, especially Canines) "Hazing" as recommended by HSUS and County Animal Control doesn't work and can actually cause you to be attacked especially by a rabid raccoon, fox or Coyote. Hazing leads to Habituation in which the predator becomes desensitized to it. In other words, it is like "Crying Wolf", it doesn't work anymore. It trains the animal to become bolder and more aggressive towards you. With Wild Hogs, this could lead to serious injury, becoming disabled for life or death if you attempt to haze them and they charge you. For Example, according to my Doctor, the mortality rate for a broken hip caused by a Hog charging and hitting you is very high due to blood clots in the legs that move to the lungs. Hogs are filthy animals and their tusks are covered with many diseases and can cause sepsis, blood infections and many other complications. If you are attacked or bitten, the Post Exposure Rabies Vaccine is very, very expensive, many thousands of dollars more than what it would cost to have us remove the Threat. If you are charged and carved up by a wild hog, you will spend many days in the hospital at great cost! "Why would you take the chance on becoming injured, bitten or sliced up by a Hog when We are available to remove the Beasts Professionally and without risk to you, your family or pets?" It requires many years of training, experience and navigating a steep learning curve to in order to become proficient at Trapping and Hunting Nuisance Wildlife, especially Coyotes and Wild Hogs. So the question becomes, do you pay a reasonable fee now to remove the Threat to you, your Family and Pets? Or, do you wait until someone is injured, probably seriously, and pay much more in hospital and ambulatory costs? Perhaps you are responsible for the day to day operations of a Municipality, School or Local Government and are made aware of a wildlife issue that could reasonably be determined to cause harm to a citizen or student. Do you have the Threat removed, as you should, or do you wait until someone is injured and then become a Defendant in Litigation because you were aware of the issue but failed to take the appropriate steps to resolve the issue?" In this Litigious society we now live in I would strongly encourage you to be Pro Active in your decisions concerning these matters." 3. "Therefore, having considered the information above, it becomes abundantly clear from a Rational, Legal and Moral standpoint that the most effective option is to have the animal removed Professionally and Humanely. I have many decades of experience hunting, tracking and trapping numerous species. I use the latest humane traps and techniques to solve your issue. I hope that you will recognize that coyotes seen hanging around a subdivision in the daytime or walking down the streets in the daytime is not Normal. If attacks on Pets have not already happened, they soon will. This is a wake up call that they need to be removed. The same can be said for coyotes being seen in pastures with cattle. They are looking for an opportunity to take down a calf or pregnant heifer.It doesn't cost a thing to call us and discuss your issue."

Professional Wildlife Management is essential in maintaining the delicate balance of the Predator/Prey Ecosystem, in preventing millions of dollars of Environmental/Economic destruction and Protecting Livestock, Pets and Humans. My name is Tim Ivey and I am a State Certified and Licensed Wildlife Management Trapper. I am also an experienced Writer and have penned numerous Wildlife Management articles for Local and National websites. I have 43 years of combined expertise Hunting and Trapping, Shooting, Patterning Animal Movements, Tracking, and Understanding Predatory/ Prey Behavior. I am not a Fur Trapper, I am a Wildlife Management Trapper. I target and remove specific Nuisance or Diseased animals that pose a danger to Livestock, Pets or Humans. I remove a number of animals from the population to keep diseases in check. When wildlife is not managed and allowed to overpopulate, Nature takes over, disease breaks out, and the animals suffer an agonizingly slow inhumane death. Coyotes,or more properly Coy-wolves, have invaded Rural and Urban areas killing Pets, Livestock and even attacking Humans. These predators that have become Habituated to Human Contact must be removed or their behavior will escalate to the point of actual human attacks. Hazing may only work temporarily or not at all. Sometimes, it even causes an attack. The only real solution is to remove the Threat.That is what we do. Humanely and Professionally.

"In March of 2014, there was a mass movement of female coyotes on a cattle farm I trap in Walton County. I captured 5 female coyote in a period of a week and a half. 3 of the 5 were pregnant and another was already nursing pups, therefore debunking the myth that only the Alpha's breed. All healthy female coyotes will breed. There is no way the coyote population could have exploded like it has in the last decades with just the alphas breeding. Another trapper friend caught two female coyotes and put them in a cage. One gave birth to 7 pups, the other gave birth to 9 pups."
Livestock and Pet Death Investigation-Consulting
Many times when Pets, cattle, sheep, goats or horses die, it is unclear if they died from natural causes or Predation by Coy-wolves, Bobcats, Feral Dogs or Humans. We know what specific signs to look for in these situations and can provide you with an Honest and Accurate assessment of the situation. We investigate the carcass and surrounding area looking for specific kill characteristics and evidence exhibited by certain predators or Humans. We interview the landowner and anyone else pertinent to the investigation to gather as much information as possible. If we determine other humans are involved, we will contact and work with local Law Enforcement to bring the person to justice. If it is predation by the animals above, we can offer to you the correct solution to remove the threat to prevent further attacks.
