ASHLAND, Ore. — There is a somewhat happy ending for a story we first brought you Thursday night. Michael Connors heard distressed animal sounds from drain pipes under his patio for several days. He and several wildlife agencies were unable to coax the animal out.
On Friday, Gill’s Indoor Air Quality brought a crew to the house. They snaked a 50-foot fiber optic cable through three sets of drainage pipes. Searching through all the pipes, they were only able to find what appeared to be nests and some animal fur, probably belonging to a squirrel or baby raccoon.
“At this point, I think, I’m confident, that we’re scaring it out the other end and that’s a good thing. Hopefully the creature met up with his momma somewhere,” says Alan Williams, with Gill’s Indoor Air Quality.
Connors says he’s grateful for Friday’s help and the community response.
