Article Summary: 

The article discusses the fear of wildlife falling through ceilings into houses and emphasizes that it is a fairly uncommon situation. The article explains that animals do not have any intention of exploring rooms below the attic but holes in the ceiling can be created by snow, rain, or animals' habit of chewing or clawing at drywall. Homeowners are advised to cover holes in the ceiling immediately to prevent animals from being attracted to the light and jumping into the room below. The article also warns homeowners of the considerable damage that wildlife can cause to roofs, drywall, insulation, and wiring, and recommends removing wildlife from attics as soon as possible, especially during baby season.
