Compassionate Wildlife Solutions

Hello! My name is Chase "the Charlie" Cavalera aka The Local Tarzan. I am here to introduce myself so it may be known that there IS someone in McLean County who cares about our wildlife and can help out with humane and compassionate solutions to related issues.

I have a background in veterinary medicine, wildlife, and private investigation. These skills have pointed me in the direction of my true calling..that is, answering the call of the wild yet voiceless. Even my history in construction and landscaping comes in handy for creating a harmonious balance between the animals and humankind.

I operate under the authority of the Dept of Natural Resourses and local Law Enforcement. All actions taken are not only designed to create quality of life for the greater good, but also in strict accordance with the law.

I am the investigator, the negotiator, the trapper, the ambulance,  triage and of course rescue squad all in one!

That being said, I am an independent entity, and an unfunded resource. Though home owners/tenants may be billed a nominal fee, most of my job description brings me to places like roadways, parks and public areas and my efforts are out of pocket. Monetary donations/contributions are always welcome. Proper safety equipment, tactical gear, medical supplies, my own vaccinations and permits and even fuel can become quite costly.
