Getting rid of small animals outside of house

Asked August 8, 2018, 9:50 AM EDT

I have an animal(s) that frequently leave a deposit (bowel movement) on the sidewalk to my house. This always happens overnight and I see it in the morning. The size of the deposit is small - about 1 inch long and the thickness of a wooden pencil. What can I do to get rid of this nuisance?

We cannot say for sure what you are dealing with. Take a look at some photos of scat from the website Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management for some possibilities.
