It’s at this time of year that raccoon removals get a little more tricky. Once inside the attic we realized that we were dealing with mobile baby raccoons and had to act quick in order to corral them all. One baby had decided to run away from the rest but after a prolonged search he was located and removed with his siblings.
Since these raccoons were mobile and were capable of climbing, we had to place the box on its side with the hole facing up. This way they would safely stay in one place while they await mom’s return to relocate them.
We went back to check on the babies today to find that mom had a busy night gathering all her babies and headed to her alternate den site.
