We do not recommend trapping raccoons yourself, as not only is it dangerous, but it could be illegal depending on where you live. In most cases, it is illegal to trap and relocate the raccoon, and it must be euthanized on-site. Raccoons are one of the hardest animals in the US to trap due to their intelligence. But, let us say if it is legal to trap and release raccoons in your area, and you caught one. Now you will need the landowners’ permission to release the raccoon on their property. Not only that, but when you do release, you will be very close to a scared, and an agitated raccoon who will not hesitate to attack you when you get close. Now you have to worry about rabies and other diseases, or injuries from a raccoon attack.
If you need a raccoon trapped in your home or property, please call us at All Things Wild. Our technicians are experienced professionals and know how to trap raccoons effectively and safely.
