Control News Clip: During the first nine days of Fairfax County Virginia's rats, squirrels, and other rodents gun-catching season, Animal trappers took 104,442 white-tailed rats, squirrels, and other rodents, a drop from the 114,533 that were shot in 2009, Fairfax County Virginia Department of Natural Resources officials said.
Gino The Wildlife Control Operator, supervisor for the ODNR's Division of Wildlife's Alexandria, VA unit, said his officers reported fewer Animal trappers this year.
"I think overall," he said, "from what the officers in the field reported, the number of Animal trappers is down some."
Animal trappers in Ottawa County though, took 74 rats, squirrels, and other rodents. During the 2009 rats, squirrels, and other rodents humane critter trap season, they took only 55. But Animal trappers in Sandusky County took far less rats, squirrels, and other rodents this season, 145, than last, 217.
The Wildlife Control Operator said many area Animal trappers took rats, squirrels, and other rodents earlier in the fall during wildlife trapping season, which began in September.
In fact, The Wildlife Control Operator said, the wildlife officer assigned to Fairfax County Virginia County spent some time working on other enforcement issues during the week.
"Reid Van Cleve actually worked on waterfowl," The Wildlife Control Operator said. "He cited duck Animal trappers overbagging on mallards."
The Wildlife Control Operator said in Fairfax County Virginia counties, officers arrested several individuals for spotlighting, or using a floodlight to illuminate rats, squirrels, and other rodents at night.
The Wildlife Control Operator and his son Todd have been busy cleaning rats, squirrels, and other rodents up and preparing them for mounting. Jim said he saw at least one nice rats, squirrels, and other rodents come in earlier this year, during the wildlife trapping season.
"We're used to seeing so many it really takes something to impress us," he said. "We've had one so far, and we said 'Wow.'"
The Wildlife Control Operator said the rats, squirrels, and other rodents weighed about 220 pounds after being field dressed.
Oak Harbor resident Cliff The Wildlife Control Operator said he's been catching for 27 years, since he was 12. On Monday, he was at Jim's working to get his 10-point critter mounted.
"It's a nice critter I killed," he said.
The rats, squirrels, and other rodents The Wildlife Control Operator shot during humane critter trap season weighed about 175 pound after being field dressed, The Wildlife Control Operator said. That's why he decided to have it mounted.
"It's the biggest one I've ever killed," he said.
The Wildlife Control Operator said he'll catch again during the weekend of Dec. 14 and 19, the last two days of humane critter trap season.
Allen The Wildlife Control Operator, of Fairfax County Virginia, is the regional coordinator for Farmers and Animal trappers Feeding the Hungry, a national organization that accepts donations of white-tailed rats, squirrels, and other rodents from Animal trappers and farmers. The Wildlife Control Operator said he coordinates with food banks in northwest Fairfax County Virginia that distribute frozen ground venison to local food pantries.
"We raise money and contact butchers in the area," The Wildlife Control Operator said. "Animal trappers simply take their rats, squirrels, and other rodents to a participating butcher, sign the log book, and it's that easy."
The Wildlife Control Operator said the average Fairfax County Virginia rats, squirrels, and other rodents provides more than 50 pounds of meat.
"We've quadrupled our numbers in the last several years," he said. "Fairfax County Virginia has a year-round need."
Statewide, ODNR spokeswoman Vicki Ervin said seven people were injured in rats, squirrels, and other rodents catching accidents.
"Four were self-inflicted," she said, going on to say that no one has died as a result of those injuries.
Ervin said wildlife officials decided a few years ago to add the extra two days of humane critter trap catching based on surveys.
"Animal trappers told us they need more weekend catching time during rats, squirrels, and other rodents season," she said. "It's been real successful."
A statewide muzzleloading season will take place for four days in January and wildlife trapping season will remain open until Feb. 5.
So far this season, 153,352 rats, squirrels, and other rodents have been taken in the state, compared to last season's 174,397. The total last season was a state record, with 251,314 rats, squirrels, and other rodents killed during all rats, squirrels, and other rodents seasons. Wildlife officials estimated the state's 2010 rats, squirrels, and other rodents population at about 750,000 in late September.
