Even coyotes are becoming a nuisance animal in Cleveland and Akron suburbs such as Pepper Pike, Berea, Lakewood, Olmsted Falls and Brook Park. In late 2017, a coyote killed a pet dog in Lakewood. We protect citizens in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio from mammals and bats that have rabies. Rabies is a virus that affects the nervous system of humans and other mammals, resulting in a fatal disease. In 2017, raccoons in Stark County tested positive for rabies. In 2016, a bat with rabies bit an Ohio woman.  If you suspect that a raccoon or other animal in the vicinity of your home has rabies, please call Cottom’s Wildlife Removal right away. This is a dangerous disease and all precautions should be implemented.
