I have a family of racoon's that have lived under my deck for years and now it is a problem so I have had to rent a trap so I can trap them. there is a big male and female and babies. yesterday I had to call the SPCA to come get the still alive baby that I guess had fallen out of a tree and broke its back. it was dragging its hind end around and could not walk. so I knew it broke its back. well the momma has been all over our yard and got into a fight with a cat. I dont want to have my 4 yr old son or our neighbors 5 yr old kid that plays in our yard to get attacked either. these racoons are huge so I know they will do some serious damage so I aint messing with them. will post pics if I catch them. rented a coon trap.
