- You can also identify from the odor that what is the animal. Usually different animals have specific and different kinds of odor. The larger the animal, the stronger is its odor.
- The most important and critical thing is to locate the exact place where the Ohio animal is found. If a dead animal is found in the wall then there is something to be worried because then there is no ventilation or exhaust of the smell.
