    Font - drew olanoff @yoda we think kris will be here around 2pm ET fyi Maggie Backus 3 reviews · 2 photos 4 months ago This is our second time using A Wildlife Pro. Skunk removal is no joke of course because they stink. Kris came out the same day I called and set humane traps. I love animals but I don't think I could confront one that is stressed out because he's in a cage. It's amazing to watch them get the furry or feathery critter and take them out of the neighborhood. Thanks so much Like

    Font - drew olanoff @yoda we can't hear anything, so no wonder why this raccoon has been living rent free in our attic.

    Plant - drew olanoff @yoda Ok folks. Here's the last update. What a ride. It wasn't a raccoon it was a possum. And more wasn't crab legs. Everyone is safe.

    Font - drew olanoff @yoda This is a very happy ending.

    Font - drew olanoff @yoda moral of the story: see something, say something. when you live outside of a city, there are critters who will invade your space. please do your best to find a humane solution.
