One time, we were in northern Wisconsin and there was a dying deer on the side of the road. Obviously, she (it was a doe) had been hit by a car cause her legs were busted all to hell. Now in WI, you can bring home a deer out of season as long as you get a tag for it. So my stepmom calls the sheriff’s department and it takes them almost 30 minutes to get there. By law, and because she doesn’t carry a weapon when she’s not hunting, the deputy had to put the deer down. It took him 4 shots to hit a... Post

A couple of years ago we had two adolescent moose wander into the center of the city. Even young moose are really big so all the cops could do was just slowly drove behind them and maneuvered them away from houses, think they eventually tranquillized them.  Post

Cops should not be called for dealing with any type of wildlife, as evidenced by This American Life’s Squirrel Cop. Post

pokedext reblogged with comment3 days ago

I didn’t even need the story to know that animal control or local wildlife officials are who you should call in this case. The cops solution is usually to just shoot the animal and from the story even then it’s not always done right. If you’re thinking cops should handle this then you’re the dumbass. Who sees a wild animal and thinks someone with zero animal handling experience outside of maybe a dog should come and take care of this? It just pisses me off as someone who spent a fair amount of...

Please don’t call cops for animal related things. When I worked at the shelter, it was a literal regular occurrence to deal with dogs that had been tased by cops because they have zero idea (and training) how to deal with loose dogs. So they’s just tase them and drop them on our door step. Post

I mean cops aren’t really trained for anything except to kill humans. Post

My cousin is a retired police officer in Maine. He got a call from a homeowner because a bull moose had been hit by a car and was hanging out in the homeowner’s driveway. Before he could stop him, his partner emptied his service revolver at the moose’s head. Now they had a wounded, pissed off moose on their hands as well as bullet holes in their cruiser and the homeowner’s garage from ricochets. My cousin took out the shotgun to finish off the moose.

If only there was a public service that could control animals. Actually that qould be a great name! We could call them Animal Control and they could..... oh wait. Post

A friend of mine in high school hit a deer and like, idk how but it basically went thru the windshield of his car and was alive, badly injured and stuck in the backseat. He called the cops and they showed up, but like didnt want to kill the deer in his back seat/fire into his car bc it was like thrashing and shit. Post

desmothene reblogged with comment8 days ago

people out here acting like social workers are the only place that funding would go, instead of animal control or traffic management or the fire department... or that it could be. you know. tailored to your location based on its needs. the way local government is sometimes good at doing. and if your local government is blind to what needs fixing, maybe paying for a sociology study/assessment to see where people actually need help? data analysis? maybe actually check the logs for common calls and...

Calling the cops on a possum is like calling your mom for a spider. Unnecessary, you could do it yourself, but it's doable. Post

Only time ive heard of cops getting called for an animal problem in my area is when a yearling black bear got hit by a car and they sent a cop to sit in the ditch with it to babysit it so it didnt run away before Fish & Wildlife could get there to pick it up and take it to a rehab center Post

Police officers barely know how to respond to normal police calls, how do you expect them to deal with a wild animal? Post

If the police were involved they'd shoot the bear for being black and jaywalking Post

kairibloodheart reblogged with comment9 days ago

If you are having a problem with animals call local game wardens/fish and wildlife when it comes to wildlife, and animal control with domestic animals. It literally takes 10 seconds to google their number and everyone involved will be better off as a result. Post
