Raccoon life can be difficult, especially for a pregnant raccoon looking for a safe place to give birth and raise her babies. Raccoon mothers look for high, secluded places with a good food source nearby. Your attic would be considered a luxury suite complete with nice warm insulation for her babies. And if you have an existing rat problem, well that’s just free room service as far as she’s concerned.
If you do hear sounds of baby raccoons overhead, please keep your attic door closed and contact a wildlife professional immediately. Too many homeowners have opened an attic door only to be stared down and even attacked by a hostile mama raccoon. These ladies mean business, and they won’t hesitate to attack if they feel their babies are in danger.
Raccoons can be some of the most spoiled lazy creatures you have ever seen. They will always go for the quick and easy meal first. That can mean flipping over your expensive sod for grubs, digging through you garden for worms, or just chilling out on the birdfeeder enjoying a free snack.
These little freeloaders don’t just stop there. If you have trash cans that are not tightly secured, you could possibly wake up to your trash scattered all over your yard and those of your neighbors! Raccoons are often called Trash Pandas for this reason. They could care less how much of a mess they make as long as they get into your leftovers from the local Chinese restaurant or pizza place. Nothing says glutton like a wild raccoon digging through your trash.
This fat, jolly fellow seems to be on good dinner terms with the local cats. However, if both species decide to go for the same yummy treat, the cat will not like the outcome. No matter how cute they look, raccoons are wild animals who won’t hesitate to kill over their food sources. In some cases, raccoons and cats can get along and even be friends if they are raised together. But if you love your cats, you should keep the raccoons away from your property. Why?
Many raccoons in Shelby County carry rabies and distemper, and even if they don’t have rabies now there’s a good chance they could contract it from their own species. The last thing you need around your family and pets is a rabid raccoon, especially if it’s this big fellow!
