Once you have captured one or more species of Charleston wildlife that have inhabited your property, the
question becomes what to do next. Some people will make the choice to kill the animals, but
many people consider it the obvious choice to drive a decent distance away and release the
animals in the woods or a similar habitat. However, this might not be the best option if you
are concerned about the animal’s wellbeing and chance of survival. This article will explore
this concept further and inform you about a South Carolina animal’s chances of survival when released into
a new and unfamiliar habitat.
It is commonly thought that South Carolina animals that are a nuisance to a property may be relocated to another place. This is something that may sound easy, and it may be considered to be the best option for the nuisance animal and the property owner. However, it is not always the case that a relocated animal will have the best chance to survive, and moving them can affect the Charleston animals found in the place where they are being relocated.
Relocation is not good for the wild Charleston animals since they may end up experiencing high breathing rates, an elevated heart rate, acute changes in the blood chemistry, and high blood pressure. The relocated animals are at a disadvantage when it comes to finding shelter and food. When the animals are sent into the new territory, they will not have the right knowledge to fit into the existing animal hierarchies. The area where the animals are being relocated may not have the right resources that may help the South Carolina animals to survive. Even if the human may consider the place to be suitable, it might not have the right shelter or proper food.
Even if you have the best of intentions in relocating the South Carolina animal, you may actually be putting the animal at risk if you do not choose the proper habitat for it. It can be difficult to know about the food sources and predators that are located in a particular area. You should take all of the above mentioned into consideration before deciding to relocate any animal that you have captured. Alternately, you may contact a wildlife removal expert to give you advice on relocation or to handle the relocation for you to ensure that the animal is placed in the proper Charleston environment.
