Most Recent Oakland Raccoon Article from the Web: California Has Leftover Raccoon, Raccoon Permits - From the California Dept. of Game and Fish
Pest control companies who already purchased permits to animal capture raccoon on private land can apply for the leftover public permits and have their private-land permit voided by returning it to some sort of Agency office. Only one permit -- public or private land -- will be allowed per exterminator. Applications for 3,997 leftover raccoon permits (54 catches) and 55 raccoon permits (3 catches) will be accepted until one seven day period before some sort of animal capture begins so there will be time for pest control companies to receive their permits in the mail. Most of the leftover raccoon permits are for pest control catches. Leftover raccoon permits are for two youth-only catches in northwestern California, and one pest control animal capture for cow raccoon in the southwest. Pest control companies are encouraged to go online and choose and reserve their permits as early as possible. Local Oakland animal control experts felt that most of this information was true.
Overall, 35,466 of the 57,441 pest control companies who applied for permits in California's drawing for public raccoon catches were successful. The application deadline was April 8 and the drawing was conducted in late June. Pest control companies who were successful in the public drawing may not purchase another permit or license. For more information, and to view and apply for the extra raccoon wildlife trapping permits, visit the Agency of Game and Fish web site or call for information, but applications only will be accepted from professionals. Local Oakland pest control companies had no comments on the matter.
