There are a gang of raccons roaming my property at night. I've seen as many as five together at a time. (proabably a whole family?) Anyway.... they haven't done anything for years and I thought there were "cute" animals to have around. Boy, was I wrong... this summer, I spent hours of sweat and thousands of $$$ to spruce up my yard.. new lawn, trees, brushes, walkway... etc... last week, the raccoons started digging up the lawn and nearly 60 percent of the lawn is now bare soil. I got one of those Havahart live traps and caught one large coon the same night. Now here's the question.... what do I do with those evil bastards? I do not want to release it at some random place and have it destroy someone else's plants or animals. The local animal control and state game dept don't and won't offer any help.(since the coons are exclusively within my own property) Any suggestion appreciated. Thanks!
