For the second time in about a week, we have trapped an armadillo that has a gunshot wound.
It is armadillo breeding season and they are on the move. We recently trapped and relocated 12 armadillos from an affluent neighborhood near Tulsa. Of those 12, two had non fatal gunshot wounds.
Armadillos are much hated by gardeners and landscapers. They dig for grubs, especially Japanese beetle grubs and in doing so will often destroy a manicured lawn or landscaping. Their burrows can do significant damage to a home's foundation.
Unfortunately, too many people try to "handle" the armadillos themselves and wind up just injuring the animal. The "kill zone" on an armadillo is very small and the hard bony shell makes it difficult to get a precise shot placement.
If you have a problem with armadillos, don't take it upon yourself to deal with them. Predator Impact can quickly and easily live trap them and relocated them unharmed to our huge wildlife preserve in rural Nowata County.
