We have a pair of raccoons that visit moms place. My thought is that they live in the neighbors garage (very old horse and carriage barn), they jump the fence, find their way around moms house and over a corner in the picket fence heading down the street. Thankfully, our coop has been secure, best they have managed is a dirty paw on some trim way over their heads. BUT, moms tenant things they are getting on the roof of the house-I think he hears them scratching on the pipes and hears that instead because there is no evidence of them touching the roof. I have cut and trimmed all the trees/branches back from the house a while ago. But he is convinced, so I am going to cut the trees some more. So, how far do you think a fat raccoon can jump from a tree to a house (not down put over)?
