FL Raccoon Trapping and Removal

A professional wildlife control company does a lot more than just trap the animals, but still, this is an essential part of the nuisance animal solution process A lot of expertise, experience, and laws goes into wildlife trapping – from licensing and legal issues, to trap type/size, baits and lures, placement and presentation, safety of both people and animal, care for the animal’s comfort, etc.

Wildlife trapping should not be attempted by amateurs. One of the most common problems in this industry is the do-it-yourself people. They buy a trap, and then do everything wrong. For example, if they catch anything at all, it might be the wrong animal – a non-target species, the neighbor’s cat, who knows? Then once it’s caught, everyone asks, “now what?” and often calls a pro at that time. Furthermore, there’s a good chance that what you’ve done is illegal in your state, or it’s illegal to relocate the animal. And what if you get a skunk?

Baby raccoons are adorable little critters; with soft furry faces and little paws that will melt even the coldest of hearts. Although cute and charming, raccoons are wild animals, baby or not. In fact, it takes thousands of years to domesticate a species of animal. For instance, the dog and cat have been bred in captivity for over 20,000 years. This is why we can take them in as pets without any danger or consequences. Instinctively bred in their genes, a baby raccoon will grow up to be a wild animal in almost all domestication cases. Continue reading to learn the basic dangers of owning or domesticating a wild raccoon, or any animal for that matter. Learn why it is important for wild animals to remain in their natural habitat and environment; and why humans should admire these fascinating creatures from afar, rather than inside their homes.

Property Damages

Raccoons are fascinating mammals because of their incredible dexterity, intellect, and inquisitiveness. They are highly capable animals that can open doors, lift latches, grab and hold, and much more; just as a human hand. These characteristics, among many others, are prime examples of how destructive a pet raccoon can be in a domesticated environment. Raccoons like to explore, investigate, and dig around. In a residential setting, this can be disastrous. Because there is no controlling or training an adolescent or adult raccoon, there is no chance of teaching them to behave indoors. They are highly intelligent, which also contributes to their stubbornness for domestication.

Raccoon scat is another health hazard. Also known as raccoon droppings, scat can contain many undesirable threats. One common hazard is roundworm. These worms are microscopic and can lay hundreds of eggs in raccoon scat. If picked up and ingested by human or pet, the possible implications include violent nausea, blindness, organ failure, and even death.

Obstruction of Local Ordinances

In many states and counties, wild raccoon domestication is illegal. If a person is caught with a pet raccoon, they are liable to losing all pet ownership rights. They would be forced to pay legal penalties and court fines as well. In other states, owning a raccoon as a pet is legal so long as the person has an exotic pet license. These permits can be obtained just as easily as a gun permit, in most cities.
