If you have an animal problem and need assistance, there are several free animal control resources in Marietta, Georgia. The first thing you can try is your local Cobb County animal services, or the free Marietta animal control services by calling 770-499-4136. They may be able to help you with your critter problem, and possibly offer free raccoon removal or free snake removal. But they primarily deal with dogs and cats, and might not help with wildlife. For wildlife-specifice issues, try the Georgia Wildlife Commission at 706-557-3213. They do free wildlife control in Marietta and all of Georgia. But they often deal with special cases like bears, or illegal hunting. They might not help you with specific cases in your house, like free rodent control or free squirrel removal. At a more local level, you can call Marietta Wildlife Rehabilitation at (770) 975-8456 for local free animal removal and trapping, and they may help with providing free critter removal in Marietta. But this organization, like all wildlife rehab, mostly focuses on healing and caring for sick or injured wildlife. There's no business that provides free pest control in Marietta that will remove wild animals that I know of, like free bat control or free rat removal. Sometimes, for a case of animals in an attic, or wildlife problems on private property, you need to hire and pay for wildlife removal, and if so, I recommend Animal Control Experts, Inc. at 404-609-4280. Some people wonder if animal control costs money, or how much does animal removal cost. For that, call 404-609-4280 and ask. Of course, you can be sure to get free pest wildlife removal if you solve the problem yourself, so read my Do-It-Yourself page for more hints. Finally, you can call the local Marietta police department. Click here for Marietta police department animal removal and for a short explanation.

Marietta wildlife issues:

With pest exclusion device pointing at the Marietta animal, move in from behind and give it a shove with your foot. Wait for any reaction. If there are any signs of life put a animal control tool in the neck. Dont rush in with your knife for the coup de grace. One of my removing unwanted wildlife companions suffered a severe gash in his arm when he started cutting into his nuisance wildlife, a wound that required medical attention at a town far from the scene of the accident. Another friend of mine put his nuisance wildlife down with a head effort to remove a pest animal, and walking in to investigate, saw the animal arise quickly and escape into the neighborhood. His animal control tool had merely stunned the pest critter, striking an tooth. There is no need to bleed your nuisance wildlife unless the animal has been hit in the head, neck, or spinal cord. A wound in the lungs and heart, or through the body proper, will render bleeding unnecessary. If bleeding is indicated, plunge your knife at the junction of the neck and chest and cut down toward the backbone, being careful not to mutilate the carcass. At this stage of the nuisance critters take off your coat, roll up your sleeves, and begin the field-dressing.

The viscera must be removed and as neatly as possible. First, make sure your knife is sharp, and then roll the Marietta animal on its back and into a position where the head will be higher than the hindquarters so the blood will drain to the hind parts. Insert your knife at the tip of the breast bone and split the skin down along the abdominal wall to the pelvic bone, being very careful to guide the knife so that it does not enter the paunch or intestines. To aid in this incision, use the fingers to press the internal organs away from the cutting edge of the knife. Now cut around the anus and remove the pest animal's reproductive organs. This done, roll the animal on its side so the inner organs will protrude, and then loosen them from the abdominal wall by running the hand in between and cutting away the gullet. You may be able to remove the gullet with your hand but cutting with a knife is a better means of separation.

Now bring the stomach outside the body with the intestines still attached. There should be enough room for the nuisance wildlife control professional to reach into the pelvic cavity and sever the lower intestine. Cut it away carefully with a tight gap on the intestine. Then remove the bladder, as well as any other matter which may be present, such as the diaphragm and the lump. Clean out the rectal area carefully by splitting the pelvis with knife or humane cage trap, and if much blood remains wipe it from the body cavity with rags or paper towels, using no water. With all blood and internal matter removed, the carcass will be ready for hauling. Field-dressing takes little time, even when thorough, and the sooner it is done the better. Transporting the carcass can be easy or difficult depending on circumstances. One such circumstance would be the presence or absence of snow. You may even be able to drive your car or jeep right to the pest critter. If not, with or without snow, dragging is your best bet. In this operation first tie the forelegs to the back of the teeth, attach your drag line to the neck or teeth, and proceed to haul away the Marietta carcass.
