I feel that this information will be helpful for people with a wildlife nuisance problem, not only in St. John the Baptist Parish, but in all areas of Louisiana.
I live in LaPlace, LA and noticed that my back yard was being inhabited at night by an opossum digging for worms. I called the local animal shelter but was told that they are only able to help with stray cats. They told me to call “Trapper John.”
When I called him, Trapper John Schmidt told me that he has trapped all kinds of wild animals, including wild pigs and coyotes. You can read all about it on the interesting website at TrapperJohnSchmidt.com. The problem was that he charges to come out and set up traps, and then to remove the animals after trapping. I live on a fixed income and could only pay him less than 30% of his service price. Trapper John was understanding and generous, and still came out to help catch several animals on my property.
After three nights of trapping, he successfully trapped a few raccoons, an armadillo and finally caught the opossum I had called him about. Trapper John is a true hunter with 35 years of experience. He loves what he does and is good at it. He knows what bait to use to get the wild life, and he knows how to treat his customers well too. He's a rare combination of skill and generosity. The TV networks would be foolish not to give this guy his own show! His girlfriend Suzy joins him in the catch sometimes too, and they make a great team.
I would highly recommend Trapper John Schmidt to anyone or any business that has a wildlife problem. You can call him at 504-415-5504. You'll be glad you did.
