I borrowed a hav-a-heart type trap from a co-worker and last night caught this guy. A big boar raccoon, with a crabby attitude. I have called my local animal shelter who told me to call the Dept of Fish and Wildlife, that THEY relocate the animal to parks. I mentioned that releasing wild animals into parks was illegal and he said THEY are the Dept of Fish and Widlife! Well needless to say the Dept of Fish and Wildlife told me THEY do not release the animals...BUT I can! I need 100 contiguous acrea and the landowners permission. They also can hook me up with private animal control that will charge a fee to dispose of the 'coon. I called 2 of these guys. The first one, a gruff crabby old dude said he releases the coons onto his own property and would charge me 45 to do that. He is located in the same county I am in. The 2nd guy would euthanise the coon with carbon dioxide for 50 if I bring the coon to him. He also told me a boar coon can travel 30 miles to get back to his home range, and I would have to release him farther out than that. Then the coon runs the risk of starvation etc... GAWD I just want safe chickens, I don't want to deal with this everytime I trap a critter. Oh and before anyone suggests it, NO I can not DO this guy IN myself. I don't have it in me.
