    Default A not so cute picture

    Inside my shop I built a show room (when I had the gun store) that was also a vault about 30x19 inside with a ceiling that is secure as well and also lower then the original ceiling, in this space I have been hearing noises, more recently a lot of fussing, figured it was these critters. Now what to do. Don't want to shoot them, it pretty late in the year to trap and re-locate them but they are so damned destructive I need to do something.

    This was taken just minutes ago.

    In the back of the shop used for storage they have done a lot of ceiling damage. They are just trying to survive the best they can, it's not like raccoons try to be destructive, they just are destructive, that's the long and short of it. I hate to shoot them, I really do.
    Any opinions on trapping and re-locating this time of the year?

    well you can shoot them they make nice hats..other then that id catch them some how and take them for a long drive to the country and let them lose,

    other then that you can call your local human society and have them remove them for you and make sure you get them to check for babies as well you know them raccoons all they do is eat and have sex all the time

    ha-ha, they are some bad to the bone critters you get one backed into a corner. They are healthy and fat, I know they eat the cat food I put outside. I have seen three of them out side eating the cat food with cats not two feet away perfectly content.

    Well if that's what I've been hearing they are into some real rough sex

    You got a barn and live anywhere near Lexington Ohio ?

    hmmmm. there is a barn just across the road from where I live, not used for much, hard to believe I hadn't given that a thought.

    Ah, the good old days!

    ***********************

    We've trapped and relocated (4-5 miles away) several raccoons over the last few years, at least one of whom I'm convinced is a repeat offender. Don't get them cornered, don't piss them off, and don't get your fingers anywhere near the trap if you do catch them.

    Other than that, they are kinda cute and innocent looking, aren't they?

    Don't get bitten. Raccoons are generally considered to be carriers of rabies and who needs the hassles of rabies immunizations.
