Baby birds dumped in trash by attic cleaning crew workers

At Carolina Waterfowl Rescue, a nest of baby birds were dumped in the trash by a crew cleaning a homeowner’s attic.

“We had someone bring these birds in she found them in her garbage. She had called someone to do a repair in her attic and they found the birds in there and just threw them in the garbage. Thankfully she went out to put something in the trash and found them still alive. Instead of waiting for someone else to do something she rushed them down to the rescue,” the organization posted on their social media page.

It is unfortunate that wildlife can get into clothing dryer vents or attics. There are wildlife animal control services to homeowners, businesses and municipalities. Wild animals left in homes can cause a great deal of damage, however there are humane and responsible techniques for pest control services.

“This unfortunately is very common mostly with damage control agents who come out to clean birds out of dryer vents. Normally they are killed but just to throw them in the garbage to starve to death is particularly cruel.”

Companies that use non-lethal animal removal, no-trap animal control, wildlife release on the site or one way doors to minimize wildlife can help with humane practices. Certified wildlife specialists have plans to remove the nuisance pests humanely. Before calling a company to remove those squirrels, mice or birds, make sure to obtain a referral from a local wildlife rehabilitation, humane or animal control agency. Ask for references and check with previous companies.

We hope you all survive baby birds.
