A Large Animal in the Laundry Room? No. Just Mice.

Monroe Animal Control officers investigated reports of a trapped animal, beaver damage and a lost dog.

Animal Cut Down to Size

A Patmar Circle woman found a ceiling tile on the floor Jan. 10 and thought a large animal was stuck in her laundry room. An officer searched the room, but found no evidence of an animal.

Police said the woman's husband believes mice caused the tile to come down and a referral was made for an exterminator.

Beaver Damage Closes Road

Beaver exclusion devices were removed from two culverts along Garder Road in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy two months ago. But beaver damage since the storm led the Public Works Department to close the road on Jan. 14.

Monroe Animal Control Officer Ed Risko said the dirt road was weakened by flooding, freezing then thawing on warmer days. He said the exclusion devices, which allow water to flow through beaver dams, will be installed again in the spring.

Lost Dog

A black and tan German Shepherd was reported missing by its owner at Webb Circle at 2:01 p.m. on Jan. 16.

Raccoon Casualties

A dead raccoon struck by a vehicle was found in front of Masuk High School on Monroe Turnpike on Jan. 10. Another raccoon killed after being hit by a vehicle was found in the 600-block of Route 111 that same morning.
