Got raccoon #2

I setup the trap last nite before going to bed with the hopes of finishing the relocation program started last week. Bingo – one young ‘coon in the trap this morning, soon to be relocated to a nice place miles away near the reservoir. Maybe he’ll find his friend, maybe not – just so long as he doesn’t find our place again.

  1. You need to start tagging these critters somehow, to see if they are indeed making it back to the ranch.

  2. Yea, I hope they’re not making their way back from 7-10 miles away. I let ’em go by a creek far away, hoping that perhaps foraging in a more natural environment would keep it from wandering back. He should set up shop by the creek with any luck – there isn’t much water between there and here, so perhaps he’ll be smart and stay there. I guess I could tag ’em with a small dab of dye or something on the fur, but there’s no way I’m sticking my hand into the trap to ear tag ’em 🙂
