Some residents in a Broken Arrow neighborhood believe that new construction may be the cause of some unexpected animals in their yard.
FOX23 reported on Thursday about a new land reclamation project near NSU’s Broken Arrow campus. Residents who live in a nearby neighborhood said that they have seen some interesting animals show up in their front yard after the construction started.
Ty Davis told FOX23 that she welcomes the development in the area but she said lately she has seen large spiders, skunks and other creatures in her yard.
“It was very unexpected,” said Davis, “Once the construction started all of the animals started showing up.”
One neighbor told FOX23 that he had seen large spiders and armadillos in his yard.
Davis said that the biggest shock was when something ate her pet ducks.
“We had about ten ducks back there and then one by one they would come up missing,” said Davis, “We knew something was getting in there we just didn’t know what.”
FOX23 checked with a person with wildlife control who said that it is difficult to pinpoint why it is happening, but that it is common for animals that are displaced from their habitat to be pushed out to wander.
