|Young raccoon in my back garden|
There are many birds, coyote, fox, beavers, skunks, groundhogs, deer, wild turkey, bobcat and outgoing and very social raccoons. In early spring, the baby kits come to my yard to play with my dogs toys, to bathe in our pond and to steal my dog’s food bowl.
At first, I thought it was the cutest thing, but then one night I viewed a family reunion of raccoons. They were up the trees, in the fountain, removing my plants from the garden containers and sitting at the picnic table.
I had a problem and needed to take drastic measures to remove the raccoons from my yard and garden.

|Live Animal Two-Door Raccoon Cage Trap|
The two door trap is easy to use, the animal walks into the trap and doors close. I have never had a problem with releasing a raccoon. When I open the front gate by pulling it straight up the raccoon usually bolts from the trap and runs into the woods.
Optional add straw or newspaper to the floor of the trap as it makes the trap more inviting.
