LAYTON, Utah (AP) -- The cost of controlling the critter population in Davis County is on the rise. Davis County Animal Control Officials say they trap about six raccoons and skunks a day.

Davis cities may have to spend extra money to help out.

Animal control officials will send a letter to each mayor to determine how to handle the problem in each city.

Calls about raccoons and skunks have mushroomed over the years as development has infringed on the animals territory. The county provides animal control services for all 15 Davis cities and Hill Air Force base. But those contracts deal with domestic animals, such as cats and dogs, not raccoons and skunks.
