Last year, in Arapahoe County, Colorado, a homeowner discovered a furry surprise stuck in his window well. Upon closer examination, there were not one, but four furry surprises—baby foxes! The little kits could not get out of the window well space on their own. The homeowner alerted the area Animal Control Officers who came and removed the babies making sure that they were well cared for.
Those homeowners were lucky that their window well surprise was so small!
Also last year, in Washington City, Utah, a mom was working inside her home when her child rushed in and alerted her that there was a mountain lion in their window well. No way, thought Mom. There is no way a mountain lion is in our window well! But the child insisted and dragged Mom outside to take a look for herself. Sure enough, there was a mountain lion in her window well!
Mom called the police who sent out the Division of Wildlife Resources to safely remove the mountain lion and release it back into the wild.
Wild animals becoming stuck in a window well happens more often than you think. It may not always be a mountain lion, but larger rodents like possums, skunks, or raccoons often become trapped in the space. Smaller animals like rats, mice, or rabbits can fall in as well. Climbing can be difficult for these animals. Once they fall in, they may not be able to get out.
Window well covers can prevent this type of animal ordeal. Window Bubbles are the best option since they are custom made to fit perfectly over your window well, not leaving any gaps that could allow an animal to squeeze through.
