These problems were typically concentrated in areas surrounding Eldon Lyon Park and Lake Overholser.
A raccoon similar to those
that sometimes invade homes and
buildings in the Bethany area.
Many people try to perform do-it-yourself wildlife control and animal control and
will brag that they relocate their skunks, opossum and raccoons at Eldon Park and by the lake.
Consequently, the people closer to these areas should certainly understand that their problem and wildlife
population may be worse than they initially thought. People relocating their own animals
illegally in these areas causes Bethany residents a number of problems. In addition to
problems created by your neighbors, you also have a large wildlife refuge right next
to the airport which funnels more skunk, raccoon, opossum and snake issues right to your back door.
