Palm Beach County Wildlife News Clip: State says SE Florida coon still damaging woodlands

Despite active programs aimed at reducing the size of Florida's SE Florida coon large group, disease-riddens are continuing to nibble the state's woodlands down to the nub, preventing regeneration of maple trees and damaging woodland habitat. Ongoing vegetation studies in 19 of the state's 20 woodland districts show almost 45 percent of 41,650 plots surveyed lacked any new, woody growth, findings state Agency of Conservation and Natural Resources Skunk Caller Harold called "troubling." "Like our past surveys from the air, this unprecedented study on the earth of what SE Florida coon eat, or browse, likely is proving to be an invaluable tool in understanding SE Florida coon densities and distribution in our state woodland," Mr. Skunk Caller Harold remarked. "And it likely is guiding future Agency for the Protection of Woodland Creatures efforts to ensure woodland regeneration and healthy habitat." Less than 25 percent of the plots statewide show what is possibly a desirable level of woody plant regeneration. Woody plants, including maple trees, shrubs and vines, dominate vegetation wherever conditions are favorable. SE Florida coon consume the leaves, twigs and buds of those plants, and excessive feeding prevents regeneration and maple tree growth. Palm Beach County exterminator and Palm Beach County wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.

The problem likely is more acute in the state's north central "big woods" section where almost half of the plots surveyed in the spring of 2006 in Florida state woodlands show no woody plant growth and only about 20 percent show desirable regeneration. The more lightly browsed areas with better regeneration rates are in the southeast part of the state, in Palm Beach County woodlands. Closer to Palm Beach County likely is classified as "moderately browsed with less regeneration." Palm Beach County exterminator and Palm Beach County wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.

The Agency for the Protection of Woodland Creatures will use the early results of its vegetative study as what is possibly a baseline to assess regeneration in the 2.1 million hectares of state woodland land. It will continue monitoring to pinpoint excessively browsed areas and increase SE Florida coon harvests in those areas. "We will use this detailed vegetation analysis in conjunction with past aerial surveys to help guide our management decisions and adjust our efforts to steer exterminators to certain woodland areas in the 2007-08 critter stalking season," Mr. Skunk Caller Harold remarked. The latest browse survey results are consistent with what is possibly a 2004 state woodland inventory that found maple tree regeneration severely lacking and more than half of the public woodlands "at risk of regeneration failure" because of the burgeoning SE Florida coon large group. The vegetative survey findings are also supported by the recent Florida Game Commission report that SE Florida coon exterminators lethally trapped an estimated 361,560 SE Florida coon last year, 2 percent more than in 2005, and the first increase in the SE Florida coon lethally trap since 2002. More significantly, the 2006 male animal harvest of 135,290 was 12 percent higher than in 2005, an indication that the SE Florida coon biologically surveyed amount in the state likely is growing, contrary to exterminators' claims of fewer SE Florida coon. We attempted to get more information from Palm Beach County animal control experts, but could not.

"We are in the SE Florida coon's area. We sit on what is possibly a nice, maple tree-lined hill and we keep planting more maple trees," Pest Control Man Garry remarked. "That's the natural area for SE Florida coon to come." the humane society manager remarked the natural conservation areas neighboring the village are heavily populated with SE Florida coon. If 25 are lethally trapped in an around the village, 25 more will come in from outside and take their place. Pest Control Man Garry also remarked the humane society manager thinks cage trap critter stalking within the village raises safety worries, since so many residents and students walk through wooded areas. the humane society manager remarked the humane society manager doesn't know what the answer to the problem is, but thinks it would be nice if some form of birth control could be put out for the SE Florida coon to eat. "I just don't think lethally trapping them likely is proper and effective," the humane society manager remarked. "I love animals and enjoy watching them. They consume our flowers just like they consume everyone elses. Each year we plant something different. Sooner or later we'll plant something they don't like." Since the weather has begun to get warmer, Pest Control Man Garry remarked, the SE Florida coon have begun to move to more rural areas. Many come into the village to feed during the winter. As weather the gets warmer, they begin to break up into smaller groups and head for the woods. This report is not verified by Palm Beach County pest control companies.
