Important Disclaimer

When people think of disclaimers, they usually think of legal documents and mandatory notices, which is an accurate description. However, in addition to that, it should be noted that disclaimers often provide important information with respect to whether or not the information should or should not be taken as advice and how applicable it may or may not be to every situation.

Disclaimer For TotalWildlifeControl.com
and The Wildlife Whisperer Website

  1. Every person has a different wildlife question or dilemma. Nothing on this website is to be taken as instruction or advice by us. We will take no responsibility for your actions after reading our website. We cannot assess your particular problem without doing a proper on-site inspection.
  2. Listed birthing seasons and times are different in different parts of the world and may not always be accurate for your immediate area. Many times, even in the same states or cities, birthing times vary.
  3. By looking at many of our pictures, one might come to believe that we are saying it is safe to handle wildlife. It is not safe. We have years upon years of experience and our contact is very minimal, because a human imprint on wildlife is WRONG.
  4. The Wildlife Whisperer does not condone intentionally or unintentionally placing a human imprint on any wild animal, undomesticated animal or wildlife.
  5. Many photos were taken with animals being left at licensed, inspected wildlife rehabbers.
  6. Many of the photographed animals were in the process of being rescued or transported to a wildlife rehabber. Many animals are briefly lifted for photos before being put into a carrier for release or before the actual release.
  7. Before releasing any wildlife, they are thoroughly inspected for injuries, missing body parts, infections, cuts and scrapes. Many of our photos of handled wildlife are taken during said inspections.
  8. Pictures depicting us “mouth feeding” worms to a hawk or other birds, are birds at our local zoo… stuffed educational zoo taxidermies – dead a long time ago. Note the backgrounds. These simply make for funny pictures.
  9. Other photos are taken at the actual rescue site immediately upon capture… posing for a moment for a picture.
  10. We do not condone having wildlife – of any sort – as pets. This includes raccoons as pets, squirrels as pets, coatamundi as pets, and skunks as pets. We believe that time has proven that wildlife will all eventually come to despise captivity. Once an animal with a human imprint is released into the wild – it will not possess the mandatory skills needed to survive. Imprinted wildlife will typically die a slow, inhumane, starved out, beat-up, pushed out, miserable death.
  11. Wildlife rehabilitators relocate and release wildlife. Typically, it is not appropriate, possible or legal for wildlife to be released where it was rescued from. We believe that they have a better chance of survival being relocated vs. dying in a gas chamber, drowning or a kill trap.
  12. Relocation of certain species is understandable under certain circumstances. Resident Canadian geese and bats have a much better chance of survival. One study has shown that relocated squirrels died very quickly in their new location. We believe that the best place for wildlife is in their current ecosystem, but not in your home or business.
  13. Even the Humane Society of the United States understands that not all nuisance wildlife situations can be remedied easily with non-lethal or non-trapping methods. Furthermore, it is understood that many traditional methods will prevail over green and humane methods (example: mole trapping vs. habitat modification to exclude moles). Because traditional trapping methods are more common, it is seldom understood what other options are possible. More often than not, there is a cost effective, long term solution that will not take wildlife out of their current eco-system. Additional methods are being discovered each year. The Wildlife Whisperer will strive to further this exciting green, eco-friendly and humane aspect of wildlife management because we believe in it. We believe that our methods can not only make us better people, but also improve this beautiful world that we live in.
