Live-trapping a raccoon: lesson learned

Live-trapping a raccoon Live-trapping a raccoon
We recently live-trapped a pesky raccoon that was becoming an expert birdseed thief. The guy who loaned me the trap warned me that the raccoon would destroy the grass or whatever was under the trap. So we put old rugs under it. It took me a half hour to remove the urine-soaked shreds of the rug remainders from the cage.

I just noticed that the how-to website suggests that “the release site for these large animals should be over ten miles away.” Dang. I released this one by Ross’ house.

  1. Ross’s house is ten miles from my house. How about a google map? Does he also accept snakes and stray dogs and cats? Old X mas trees and sofas?

  2. We live across the pond and smelled skunk the other night. Glad you caught it. Possums are also about.
    Ah Wilderness!
