Raptor Rescues

It’s not always the same routine of rodent and raccoon inspections at Critter Control. Sometimes the call we get involves the odd creature in the fireplace, loose in a store or warehouse, or even trapped in playground equipment. In these instances, Critter Control was called to rescue and release these raptors.

Owl In Houston Chimney

Critter Control of Houston, TX removed this owl from a fireplace and released it unharmed. The owl had fallen down the fireplace chimney and was trapped in the smoke shelf. A simple chimney cap was installed and nothing will be entering this customer’s fireplace again.







Owl In Columbus Fireplace

Critter Control of Columbus also removed this owl from a fireplace and released it. A quick installation of a chimney cap solved this problem from occurring again.

Nashville Owl Rescue

This poor owl found itself tangled in a soccer net in Nashville, TN. Critter Control of Nashville untangled this poor creature and it left dazed, but otherwise unhurt. The owl was so thankful for being removed from the net, that it allowed the manager to use his bare hands to untangle the net. This bird has extremely sharp talons and a beak that could’ve easily removed flesh from his hands.
