Raccooning

Hi everyone,

Couple of nights ago I set my live trap and baited it with some lunchmeat that had gone beyond its human consumption date. Next morning I had a young adult raccoon sitting in the trap calmly eating the last of the slices. I’m sure it’s one of two young ones that I photographed a few months ago sitting in my neighbor’s plum tree having a fine time with the ripe fruit.

I was going to drive out of town to release it but Sandy suggested calling Animal Control instead. I did and they came by right away to take care of the drive and release chore for me. I don’t know if the other sibling is still around but I’ll try my luck again over the weekend. You never know.

  1. Great that Animal Control took care of it for you. Raccoons make lots of messes. I haven’t seen one in a while, but guess they’re here! Love the picture!

    • They do make messes. The young ones are cute but I’m still happy to see this one taken to the woods somewhere. Now I’ll see if I can catch the sibling. Then I’ll be really happy!
