Hey everyone!Often on, there's been a raccoon trying to to get in our house! My Dad borrowed a trap from one of his freinds! He's been attempting to catch it for over a month now! The other day, he caught a skunk! He couldn't get rid of it by himself because of the spray! He had an animal control specialist come and shoot it with a tranquilizer and move it back to the wild! And finally last night,he caught the raccoon that was trying to get in our house! He hauled it 16 miles from our house to the wild where it won't be able to get back to our house hopefully!

Hopefully you don't live 16 miles from my house.

Got enough of my own racoons, possums, squirrels, deer, rabbits and the occasional bear casuing havoc in the garage, compost, bird feeders, and gardens.

I read an interesting newspaper article Sun. It said that in the 30's American racoons were introduced into Germany for hunting and now they're everywhere breaking into houses and the innovative Germans have even gone so far as electrifying their gutters to deter the varmints. They call them, in German, washing bears.

Bet if you set that trap out you'd catch at least one more.

We had a raccoon problem in our neighborhood, My neighbor caught 17 that spring

I found a dead one in my garage last winter. Believe she was nesting in there and may have been scared into a heart attack when my car slid on the ice and went through the back of the garage (no visable injuries, just stiff as a brick).

I used to raid 'coon litters up in the trees with my step-brother when I was younger and get the pups before their eyes opened. We'd nurse them on Karo syrup and milk and they'd be tame when their eyes opened. We'd make pets out of them (I only did that twice actually.) I had one coon that stayed around for about a year before the call of the wild lured him back into the woods. I used to love to walk around town with "Cooney" on my shoulder. He was a lot of fun.

Linnie, it's clearly obvious you've never had an encounter with a raccoon!!!!

It's quite exciting!....and potentially dangerous!! Rabies and claws!!!

I had a family of raccoons in my shop last year, my 5 pound terrier found them. She's a smart little dog; she quickly decided she could intimidate groundhogs, squirrels and deer easier than a mama 'coon!

You're right Libby, a coon can make short work of a dog with those claws & teeth. My two ( 100 lbs. & 70 lbs.) "think" they could deal with one if they were ever able to catch it, I know better.The racoons in my neighbourhood are so well fed they waddle but they're surprisingly quick when chased.

Next time, keep it in its cage and run it out to a coonhound owner so he can run his dogs with it. The younger ones can't learn from the older ones unless they are actually chasing them down.

I just saw my favorite racoon on my way home from work. He was laying flat as a pancake in the middle of Commerce Road.

I caught one on a spinner bait when I was night bass fishing one time, that sucker put up one hell of a fight. No kidding, I pitched my bait up close to shore and it went over a limb, I was shaking it back over and that sucker came out of nowhere and bloused my spinner bait and musta hooked himself cause he let out a shrill and headed for cover.
Had to cut the line.
Now, one time I hooked beaver ( animal that lives in a den on the water) and those suckers got some horsepower and torque in the water.

Give him 6 or 7 days to get back.

Lots of them around here. Normally they are no problem, but a couple of years ago they started to dig up my parents' lawn in search of grubs to eat. Trapped two of them and relocated them to the state park.

I used marshmellows as bait. The critters cannot resist them.

For the next cookbook:

Bar-B-Q'd Raccoon

~ 4 - 6 lb. raccoon, cut into serving pieces
~ 1 cup red wine
~ 2 onions, sliced
~ 3 bay leaves
~ 1 tbsp salt
~ 1 tsp pepper
~ 3 cloves garlic, sliced
~ 2 cups of your favorite barbecue sauce
~ 1 tbsp paprika

Place the raccoon pieces in a large pan. Add the wine, onions, bay leaves, salt, pepper and garlic. Add enough water to cover the meat. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. After 1 hour, remove the meat and drain. Place the raccoon in a greased baking dish. Mix the barbecue sauce and paprika together and pour over the meat. Cook at 325 degrees for 50 - 60 minutes. Serve and Enjoy!
