Humane ways to kill a squirrel
in a cage
The presence of squirrels as unwanted guests at
your home is always very much disturbing and
imposes a number of health hazards therefore you
are forced to take appropriate steps for getting
rid of it for good. It is never a humane
practice to kill a rodent, but you are sometimes
left with no other better option for the safety
of your family members. Before taking any step
check what laws have to say in this matter and
your preference should always be to bring as
much little discomfort as you can for the
animal. Below we will discuss some options,
which you can answer your question that what are
some humane ways to kill a squirrel in a cage?
The best option is that you should use spring
traps as the most important aspect related with
them is that they are considered as the most
humane traps, which can be used to kill the
animal. They bring pain to the animal no doubt
in this, but plus point is that animal will be
killed in a quicker fashion and there are always
maximum chances present that animal will die
quickly. While setting up the trap you have to
take care of some very important factor like
squirrel should be able to reach the trap loaded
with bait without any trouble and regular
changing of the bait should always be ensured.
Still if you find the squirrel badly injured,
but not dead then kill it is the smallest
possible time period for freeing it from pain.
Another easy and somewhat humane way of killing
the captured squirrel in cage is to shoot it.
Now one very important point to mention here is
that this should always be carried out by
someone skilled and properly trained because
missing the aim can bring other troubles for
you. For this purpose you can use smaller
caliber gun of lower power. Have a clean aim of
the rodent captured in the cage and shoot in its
head it will bring death soon for the animal.
The shooting environment should be saved because
chances are there that bullet will pass through
the head of the animal so it should not hit any
other important thing or person.
Another method is to kill the animal by forced
trauma in the head region, but in most of the
situations it is not easy and in fact
emotionally challenging as well.
You can also kill the animal by using the
approach of asphyxiation by means of CO2.
However, it is a lengthy method and has some
detailed requirements, which you need to
fulfill. In case you feel that you are not
capable of dealing with this task, then call and
expert. Go back to the How
