Two juveniles removed from the attic.

Customer Raccoon Email: hi there. my husband and i stumbled on your very informative site because we are afraid we have a mom and baby raccoon family in our attic/crawl space. we have been in the house 5 years and have not heard the kinds of sounds we are hearing, so clearly there is something going on. we need to make sure that the person who helps us remove the animals and seal up whatever entry points there are is amazingly humane and will cause the least distress. clearly you are that way but not sure if you work in tampa FL. i tried Bay Animal Trapping and i spoke to Ken there already, but he seemed kind of 50/50 on the humane releasing versus euthanizing the animals. he says the state prefers that all trappers euthanize the animals (FL) and that he will rerelease if i request it. any chance you work around here? if not, how can i make sure the animals are not harmed and that mom and babies get out safe? i work for an animal welfare group for my day job so this is really important! thanks, ilana

The raccoon (Procyon lotor), is a common urban animal, and native to North America. Raccoons are easy to recognize, with a black mask and ringed tail, as seen in the above photo. Raccoons tend to weigh between 10-20 pounds as adults, and live an average of 5 years. They are mostly nocturnal, and are omnivores, and will often eat pet food or garbage. They have become very acclimated to living in cities and urban areas. They are very strong, excellent climbers, very intelligent, and they are very skilled with their hands, which causes them to commonly break into homes and attics, where they cause considerable damage, and they also destroy other property, and thus raccoons are considered pest animals by many people, which is why I remove them. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Raccoons page.
