The Township utilizes the services of Newark Associated Humane Society for animal control.
Residents are strongly advised to hire a licensed wildlife removal company to trap and remove raccoons, squirrels or other wildlife that may be nesting or causing damage to a home for the following reasons:
Without proper training and expertise, traps can catch something unintended like a skunk or opossum.
Inappropriate and inhumane handling of trapped animals will lead to criminal charges being filed under the animal cruelty statutes.
Inexperience with trapping can lead to scratches, bites, back injuries, etc.
Trapping of wildlife inside of a residence must be coordinated with necessary repairs to points of entry.
