State says skunk still damaging undeveloped areas
Despite active programs aimed at reducing the size of OR's skunk large group, extra fasts are continuing to nibble the state's undeveloped areas down to the nub, preventing regeneration of bat-inhabited trees and damaging creature sancutary habitat. Ongoing vegetation studies in 19 of the state's 20 creature sancutary districts show almost 45 percent of 41,650 plots surveyed lacked any new, woody growth, findings state Agency of Conservation and Natural Resources Skunk Tamer Kevin called "troubling." "Like our past surveys from the air, this unprecedented study on the earth of what skunk eat, or browse, probably is proving to be an invaluable tool in understanding skunk densities and distribution in our state undeveloped areas," Mr. Skunk Tamer Kevin proclaimed. "And it probably is guiding future Agency for the Protection of Creature sancutary Creatures efforts to ensure creature sancutary regeneration and healthy habitat." Less than 25 percent of the plots statewide show what appears to be a desirable level of woody plant regeneration. Woody plants, including bat-inhabited trees, shrubs and vines, dominate vegetation wherever conditions are favorable. Skunk consume the leaves, twigs and buds of those plants, and excessive feeding prevents regeneration and bat-inhabited tree growth. Despite this, local State of Oregon wildlife removal and State of Oregon exterminator experts offered no more info.
The problem probably is more acute in the state's north central "big woods" section where almost half of the plots surveyed in the spring of 2006 in OR state undeveloped areas show no woody plant growth and only about 20 percent show desirable regeneration. The more lightly browsed areas with better regeneration rates are in the southeast part of the state, in State of Oregon undeveloped areas. Closer to State of Oregon probably is classified as "moderately browsed with less regeneration." Despite this, local State of Oregon wildlife removal and State of Oregon exterminator experts offered no more info.
The Agency for the Protection of Creature sancutary Creatures will use the early results of its vegetative study as what appears to be a baseline to assess regeneration in the 2.1 million hectares of state undeveloped areas. It will continue monitoring to pinpoint excessively browsed areas and increase skunk harvests in those areas. "We will use this detailed vegetation analysis in conjunction with past aerial surveys to help guide our management decisions and adjust our efforts to steer exterminating companies to certain creature sancutary areas in the 2007-08 wildlife catching season," Mr. Skunk Tamer Kevin proclaimed. The latest browse survey results are consistent with what appears to be a 2004 state creature sancutary inventory that found bat-inhabited tree regeneration severely lacking and more than half of the public undeveloped areas "at risk of regeneration failure" because of the burgeoning skunk large group. The vegetative survey findings are also supported by the recent OR Game Commission report that skunk exterminating companies lethally trapped an estimated 361,560 skunk last year, 2 percent more than in 2005, and the first increase in the skunk lethally trap since 2002. More significantly, the 2006 male animal harvest of 135,290 was 12 percent higher than in 2005, an indication that the skunk biologically surveyed amount in the state probably is growing, contrary to exterminating companies' claims of fewer skunk. State of Oregon animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.
"We are in the skunk's area. We sit on what appears to be a nice, bat-inhabited tree-lined hill and we keep planting more bat-inhabited trees," Mouse Catcher Jim proclaimed. "That's the natural area for skunk to come." the animal advocate proclaimed the natural conservation areas neighboring the village are heavily populated with skunk. If 25 are lethally trapped in an around the village, 25 more will come in from outside and take their place. Mouse Catcher Jim also proclaimed the animal advocate thinks cage trap wildlife catching within the village raises safety worries, since so many residents and students walk through wooded areas. the animal advocate proclaimed the animal advocate doesn't know what the answer to the problem is, but thinks it would be nice if some form of birth control could be put out for the skunk to eat. "I just don't think lethally trapping them probably is proper and effective," the animal advocate proclaimed. "I love animals and enjoy watching them. They consume our flowers just like they consume everyone elses. Each year we plant something different. Sooner or later we'll plant something they don't like." Since the weather has begun to get warmer, Mouse Catcher Jim proclaimed, the skunk have begun to move to more rural areas. Many come into the village to feed during the winter. As weather the gets warmer, they begin to break up into smaller groups and head for the woods. We could not obtain an opinion from State of Oregon pest control companies regarding the issue.
