Has a squirel or any other wild animal ever gotten in your house? If so, how did you get it out?
Yes, squirrels on occasion, and twice now a bat has flown in.
The squirrels we chase out the open front door. They want out as much as we want them out.
And one night we were laying in bed watching TV and a large bat flew into the room. My husband got up and was going to try and find something to chase it out with - like a broom and as my husband left the room, the bat flew after him like he was a balloon on a string! So my husband opened the door into the garage, and the bat flew right out.
I slept thru the other bat incident. I guess the second one was much smaller.
I had a bat get into my house when I was younger. Last summer a squirel got into my house. I was 9 months pregnant then and scared to death.
For most wild animals if you leave a door wide open and move AWAY from the door (leaving the animal a clear path of escape), they will leave on their own. Some can be more stubborn...
For squirrels, I get a thick towel and corner the beast before grabbing it up in the cloth. I would seriously reccomend wearing welding gloves in case their head gets free. Their teeth are horrible... Other animals like possums and raccoons you can just cover with a towel and quickly rush outside. Bats work similarly... Your greatest weapon is a towel.
Shaddie, that was great information that you passed on. I had no idea that squirrels had such sharp teeth, which I guess now explains to me why in the movie "National Lampoon Christmas Vacations" everyone was so terrorized of the small creature, LOL. The towel was also good information. I'll keep it in mind if something similar happens to me. Once a tiny mouse showed up in my kitchen. I've seen bugs bigger than that. I was able to catch it without harming it, in a plastic cup and took it out some distance from where I lived, but a day later it was back! It was so cute, but I couldn't tolerate having a mouse in my kitchen. I discovered it was coming in from a tiny opening in the wall around the gas pipe, behind the stove. I sealed the area with grout, and problem solved.

I was watching a show about when animals attack the other day n which it depicted wild animals attacking humans and us humans slay these animals for what they do naturally. In addition to that, I think zoos, carnivals and circuses should be banned altogether from being able to hold wild animals for...

Do you have any experience with your tomato plants being devoured starting about 12 inches off the ground, and at the same time, any unripened tomatoes being eaten, even if they were 1 inch from the ground? Some marauder came into my garden last night and ate 17 of 19 set tomatoes on one plant. And...
