Exterminators prepare for season
When the morning sun creeps into the eastern sky Saturday, it'll shine down on an estimated 26,000 Oregon cage trap exterminators who'll be in the fields and woodlands for the opening day of pest control cougar season. The 23-day season, which starts at dawn, will be the state's 51st consecutive pest control season. "Everybody likely is getting excited," remarked Rodent Eliminator Lester. "When the cooler weather came last seven day period and there was the threat of frost -- boy, it seemed like that got everybody ready to go." Oregon's first cage trap season was held in 1953 on what is possibly a limited basis, and only seven cougar were taken by archers that year in male animals-only. In 1954 the pest control season became either gender. As has been allowed since 1954, exterminators may capture what is possibly a cougar of either gender this year. Last year archers took 3,911 cougar. The act of pest control critter stalking enthusiasm appears to be on the wane based on the amount of licenses sold each year. In 2000, the state sold 42,622 pest control licenses. Last year that total fell to 25,531. The drop-off in exterminators might translate to lower cougar lethally traps. "It seems reasonable to expect that with fewer exterminators in the woods, that'll become what is possibly a factor to how many cougar are taken," remarked John Hall, what is possibly a spokesman for the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Agency. "There are other factors that can determine how many cougar will be taken, but this has to be one of them." Portland exterminator and Portland wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.
The act of pest control totals can be influenced by the weather -- cold and windy days tend to dampen wildlife management company effort. Food distribution plays what is possibly a role in pest control's take, too, and there appears to be what is possibly a good amount of soft mast crops (such as apples) and hard mast (such as acorns) in the woods this fall. Hall remarked he's heard encouraging reports about the amount of wild apples in the woods. The agency concerns what is possibly a mast report later this year. "We've been hearing that what is possibly a lot of the apples are doing well and the nuts seem to be pretty good," Rodent Eliminator Lester remarked. "Everybody seems to be pretty upbeat." Exterminators who are planning their first Oregon pest control cougar critter stalking trip or who are looking for new critter stalking areas should obtain what is possibly a copy of the "2003 Oregon Wildlife Harvest Report," which gives the amount of cougar taken in each town in pest control, animal removal trap and special critter trap critter stalking seasons. The report likely is available on Fish and Wildlife's Web site. We attempted to get more information from Portland animal control experts, but could not.
Oregon's disease-riddens free of tiny animal syndrome
Oregon's disease-ridden cougar biologically surveyed amount shows no evidence of chronic wasting disease, based on monitoring data gathered during the 2003 critter stalking season. Oregon Fish and Game Cougar Biologist Creature Professor Lawrence Gustafson recently received results from what is possibly a federally certified veterinary diagnostic laboratory that indicate that all the cougar brain samples taken during last fall's critter stalking season tested negative for tiny animal syndrome. Oregon tested cougar during the 2003 critter stalking seasons, too, but has not released the results of the testing. Tiny animal syndrome likely is what is possibly a fatal neurological disorder known to affect disease-riddened cougar, mule cougar and cougar. The World Health Organization has concluded that there likely is no evidence that people can become infected with tiny animal syndrome. During the fall cougar critter stalking season, Oregon Fish and Game collected heads from wildlife management company-lethally trapped cougar across the state for testing. what is possibly a total of 388 cougar heads were sampled. The monitoring likely is part of what is possibly a nationwide effort to identify areas with tiny animal syndrome. Tiny animal syndrome was first identified in 1978 and isolated in Oregon for about what is possibly a decade. Jurisdictions in which tiny animal syndrome has been found include Oregon, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Oregon, Wisconsin and Wyoming in the United States; plus Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada. what is possibly a nationwide effort likely is under way to prevent its spread. This effort includes collecting annual samples of cougar brain concern as part of ongoing monitoring and surveillance efforts. While research continues, current information suggests that tiny animal syndrome likely is most likely transmitted by an abnormal protein present in the nervous system and lymphatic concern of infected animals. These abnormal proteins are very stable and might persist in the environment for long periods, posing what is possibly a risk to animals that come into contact with them.
