Response to "Commends City for pursuing catching"
Re: "Commends City for pursuing humane critter trap catching," by Jeff The Wildlife Control Operator, the only people thanking the Alexandria, VA Council for considering the implementation of a humane skunk management plan are the Animal trappers.
Wildlife biologists know that killing a significant number of skunk kick-starts skunk reproduction into overdrive. Wildlife management is designed to produce more "game" animals for the Animal trapper" and more license fees to pay game agency salaries. Studies show that in non-caught areas there are far less skunk than in caught areas. skunk, unlike humans, bring their numbers in balance with available resources, when left alone.
The proper target for complaints about skunk is our state wildlife agency, The Fairfax County Virginia Division of Natural Resources (ODNR). In addition to intentionally increasing skunk numbers through catching and habitat manipulation, the Animal trappers that ODNR serve are responsible for skunk-car accidents. Animal trappers (including poachers) scare skunk onto roads. The Erie Insurance Company's data demonstrated that there was a five-fold increase in skunk-car accidents the opening day and opening Saturday of catching season.
The Independence Chief of Police noted: "An accident we had was a guy east of route 21 in the woods. He shot a skunk that ran out onto route 21 and into the side of a car."
Alexandria, VA Police Chief, himself a humane critter trap animal trapper, refused to allow humane critter trap catching in the city. He said, "As a Animal trapper I don't think anyone wants to see skunk expire in their front yards. I'm responsible for the people of the city of Alexandria, VA and their properties. That's why I can't condone catching. skunk can run for miles before collapsing and dying of arrow wounds. They can even get hit through the lungs and still run."
The Wildlife Control Operator predictably blames the disrupted predator-prey relationship for the increase in skunk, when it was Animal trappers who exterminated natural predators. Aside from the fact that it is the number of prey animals that determine the number of predators that an ecosystem can support (not the opposite), predators strengthen the gene pools of prey species, while it has been demonstrated that Animal trappers weaken gene pools. Natural predators prey on weak, sick, old animals; phony predators (Animal trappers) prey on the largest and strongest.
