Muscovy Duck Capture – Please Read
Dear Silver Creek Residents,
My name is Steve, and I am the owner of Wildlife Solutions Inc. We have partnered with your HOA to relocate some of the exotic ducks that are living in your community. While many of you have experienced problems with these animals and would like to see them removed, I know that many others enjoy seeing them and are concerned for their well being. I’d like to offer a brief summary of the situation from our perspective, and then invite you to contact me directly if you have additional questions or concerns.
The birds we will be addressing are muscovy ducks. They are the larger ducks you see on the ponds, and they are considered to be an invasive exotic species. They are not native to FL or the US, and as such, they harm the ecosystem that supports all of our resident species. I have personally been dealing with these birds for 20 years statewide. Due to my extensive experience, I have worked as both a removal agent and a consultant for the Division of Wildlife, as well as a private contractor for communities, hotels, and theme parks.
I am very animal friendly and strongly oppose the euthanization of any nuisance wildlife, except in extreme circumstances. Several years ago, the state of FL changed its law to require euthanasia for many species of native wildlife removed as a nuisance, including raccoons, opossum, etc. I traveled to the capital and was the lone voice opposed to such a measure (not even the Humane Society and PETA, who were there, spoke in opposition). Even after passage, I continued to work with the FWC to get the rule change reversed, and was eventually successful. They allowed me to help draft the language of the current rules that once again allow for us to release native wildlife back into nature.
The organization that I run is very animal friendly, and while we cannot release your exotic ducks back into the wild, I have spent my 20 years building a network of animal advocate partners statewide. I am fortunate to have built relationships with people that enjoy having these animals as pets, and who agree to keep them on fenced properties with their wings trimmed to prevent flight. The birds we relocate are released onto private properties with ponds, shelters, and owners who feed them and care for their well-being.
It is my hope that you will support your HOA in their efforts to safely capture and relocate these birds to ensure the health of the natural landscape and the safety of your residents. If you have any questions or thoughts, I am happy to speak with residents directly at any time and share more information. I can be reached at 800-246-9453 ext. 104.
