What Did That???
Have you found unexplained damage done to your property? Does it look like someone has been working on your house with a crow bar? Or maybe mowing your lawn with a rototiller? Who is the most likely the culprit?
SUSPECT LINE UP:
Although all of these creatures are capable of doing significant damage to your property, the one with the cutest most innocent expression is actually the culprit. Yes, Sasquatch is responsible for…JUST KIDDING! It is actually suspect number three, the raccoon, who has done all of the damage in the pictures posted above.
Although they are very cute, cuddly looking animals, they can be very aggressive. If you suspect they are spending time on your property, make sure your pets and children can not get in a situation where the raccoons are trapped in a room with them or that pets our children could walk up on them and startle them. Making loud clapping noises or shouting can run them off as you approach the house. Carry a flashlight if the path to and from your house is not well lit. Hydrex Pest Control does do large animal trapping. You can also call your local animal wildlife rescue organization.
