After an unusually cold and snowy winter in central PA, we are all VERY ready for spring...and so is the wildlife that lives around us.
While not all animals hibernate during winter, many do hunker down and spend less time out of their den, burrow, or hole when it is cold and wet. And just like people, when the weather begins to warm up, they are ready to get outside.
What does that mean for you?
Frisky critters with "spring fever" may be out exploring more around your property. While that is not necessarily a problem, make sure not to leave trash or pet food outside to encourage critter visitors.
Also be aware that...
1. Several species are having litters this time of year. That makes animal parents much more territorial and potentially aggressive. Educate your children to NOT touch wild baby animals. (REMINDER: You should not touch them either!)
2. Your indoor pets probably have a touch of cabin fever, too. Now that you are able to leave them outdoors for longer periods of time, remember to keep tabs on them if you have seen fox, raccoon, opossum, or other critters hanging around your property.
And as always...
Assume that any aggressive animal, including those that are naturally bold AND those who are normally shy but acting aggressively, are a danger and health risk to you, your family, and your pets.
