The Board of Health has requested that our township Animal Control Officer no longer trap healthy wildlife for township residents.  A review of the State’s Essential Components of Municipal Animal Control list revealed that under established guidelines the trapping of healthy appearing wildlife that are not threatening humans “are NOT” considered necessary services for municipal animal control officer to provide.  The guidelines further state that the Animal Control Officer should be able to educate residents over the telephone on how to modify their residences (i.e. cap chimneys, secure trash firmly, etc.) so as not to attract animal nuisances and refer them to agencies that can assist them.
