Raccoons In…, No, On the House! April 1, 2009

I am all for preserving the wildlife and believe we have invaded into the lives of the animals who lived here long before us. But there does come a point at which you have to protect your family… in this case, I think our animals are most at risk.

On Sunday early morning, Kim and I heard sounds outside – on the roof or even in the attic above our room. On Monday night, I heard some animals making noise out on the lower deck. I flipped on the lights and found one, two, three raccoons out there. It looked like two males fighting over the love of a female. After I turned on the light, one male left into the woods. The other seemed to stick around to tell the girl his intentions before left. Finally, with the light still on, the smallest of them got down and headed into the woods.

I called the Wildlife Removal service in the morning and they came out the following morning (today). They said there was no sign of entry into the house… yet. They laid down 4 large live traps and I am to call each morning to give them a status. The hardest part will be to keep the doggies away. They were very interested in the traps. Needless to say, they will be on leash for the rest of the week.
