Columbus Ohio Raccoon Control Situation: Hello, we live in Columbus Ohio on the southwest side. We have a raccoon in our shed. My husband said when he went to put our lawn mower away. The raccoon did nothing but just look at him. My husband thinks it might be sick! We have a trap but don't know what to put in it. We also have a little Chihuahua that we want to protect. What should we get and how do we get rid of it? I have watched many shows about raccoons and I know the danger and disease they can carry. I just want to take care of this problem ASAP. We do not live in an apartment, we own our home, so we are responsibly for the removal of the raccoon. I would appreciate you e-mailing me back and letting me know how and what we need to do. Thank you, Patty
I think there is a raccoon living in my attic I was told that it is illegal to have them removed the month of April and May because that's when they have there babies I some need help! Just the thought of them being there freaks me out. The raccoon (Procyon lotor) is a common woodland resident with a black mask and dark-ringed, bushy tail. Raccoons can be seen feeding on exposed mud flats in coastal areas during low tide. While feeding, they frequently wet their hand-like paws in the water to enhance their sense of touch. Cute as they may be, raccoons can become nuisances around picnic areas where they quickly learn they can find easy meals and hand outs. At the beach, however, raccoons pose a serious threat to coastal birds and sea turtles by raiding nests for eggs. Do your part to share the shore with wildlife. When visiting natural areas - especially the beach - take back all of your trash and unwanted food scraps to avoid attracting raccoons to sensitive nesting habitat.
