Louisville Kentucky Raccoon Control Situation: I have a raccoon that recently moved into my attic, which is really just a small space over my upstairs and under the eves. I have had such a hard time getting information. I have called several Wildlife Rehabilitators and can't even get anyone to call me back. I naturally want to trap and remove it but I am concerned about whether there are babies or not. I am getting so much conflicting information from non experts. One person said they can have babies this late in the season and another said it is too late. This raccoon moved in about 2 weeks ago but a week ago was gone for two days. I thought it got killed or trapped somewhere else but it came back. Since it is mid-June, is it possible it has had babies now? I don't want to call a professional since they will kill the raccoon when trapped. I have someone who will help me trap it and we can safely move it to a wooded area. I would appreciate your help. Thank you. Debbie
HI, I have a question about three raccons that visit our dumpster every night - these three little rascals are frequent visitors to our dumpster and always get manage to get stuck every morning- I always try to put something in there so they can get out (so the garbage buys don't ge them) well- today I looked in there and they are all huddled up -moving a little- but not trying to get out- usually they stick their heads up and recognize me and realize it's time to go home and scurry off. It was really cold last night and I figured they'd warm up and use the rug I put in there to help them get out- but they won't even look up or try to leave...are they ok? Should I try again or are they sick? I just hate to see these little guys get hurt/killed in the garbage trucks- also- there are stray cats in the area and I know sometimes they use dumpsters as a place to have their litters. Thanks- Patti. I will use my amazing raccoon psychic powers to determine if they are okay or sick. It's possible that they just want a nice place to spend the day. If you are worried about them in your dumpster, any chance that you might, I don't know, close the lid?
