Wisconsin was made famous for its cheese factories, but it is a landscape rich with lake shores, coastal plains, sandstone formations, flat farmland, and mixed hardwood and pine forests. Unlike Maryland, which has no natural lakes, Wisconsin has thousands of glacial lakes throughout the state. Over 46 percent of Wisconsin is forested. It is a humid state with hot summers and cold winters.
The animals in Wisconsin are forest-lovers. The state is filled with raccoons, porcupines, skunks, opossums, squirrels, chipmunks, bats, and mice. Not surprisingly, large animals are also fond of the woods, and the state has moose, elk, and white-tailed deer.
Semi-aquatic animals also make their homes in the thousands of lake regions. Beavers, otters, and muskrats all thrive in self-made wetlands. Many of the animals are undisturbed due to the large expanse of preserved woodlands. In those same woodlands, large predators also make their homes. Wisconsin is home to black bears, mountain lions, coyotes, and timber wolves.
The timber wolf is known to be the most aggressive of the wolf species in the United States. These animals are not as prone to livestock killing as are coyotes, but if a winter is particularly harsh, wolves will often take down cattle or sheep.
Cougars are not often seen as nuisance animals, though attacks on people are becoming more and more common. This is partially due to man’s encroachment into nature, but it is also because of dwindling food supplies for the large cats.
The state isn’t all about the woods, though. There are ample fields in the region, and there are a number of animals that enjoy living out in the open. The badger is a fantastic digger, and it makes its home in dens dug out of the loose grassland soil. While the badger is a fierce warrior in the animal world, it does homeowners a favor by eating a diet primarily of small rodents. Along with the badger, woodchucks are another underground dweller in the state.
The list of common animals in Wisconsin also contains the most common pest animals in the state. Raccoons are notorious for living in people’s attics. Rats are a world-wide pest animal. Unfortunately, rats can survive in just about any environment, and there is nothing about Wisconsin that would turn the animals off. The state also has very strict rules and regulations regarding the removal of nuisance wildlife. Before undertaking any animal removal projects, seek guidance from a professional company.
