A wild couple of weeks for Brewster Animal Control

– On Saturday July 22nd Brewster Police Animal Control received a call about a snake in distress. Upon arrival Animal Control Officer Brogden-Burns discovered that a 3-4 foot Black Racer had gotten itself stuck in some garden netting and could not free itself. With the assistance of Brewster Police Officer Ahlman they were able to cut the snake free. Unfortunately the netting had cut into the snake around its body and head. It was transported to Wildcare in Eastham to be evaluated and treated before being released

On Monday July 31st BPD received a call of a skunk with its head stuck in a tin can. When ACO Brogden-Burns arrived she discovered that the skunk had moved into a wooded area that was thick with underbrush. She was able to get a restraint pole around the can and eventually freed the skunk. It did not show its appreciation in a very nice way!

The next day a skunk was trapped in a garage. ACO Brogden-Burns was able to rescue the skunk and release it outside without the skunk spraying.

On Saturday August 5th the BPD received yet ANOTHER call about a skunk in distress. This one had managed to get itself stuck in some netting and could not get out. ACO Brogden-Burns was able to carefully remove the netting and free the young skunk. Luckily this one did not spray either!
