    If a person just happened to live in Vancouver and had a couple of cats damaged by raccoons and then possibly trapped a live raccoon....anybody know how a person might relocate or otherwise dispose of said raccoon, Hypothetically speaking??
    Just curious...
    The city says we have an excess raccoon population at this time and call the state. The state says call a raccoon wrangler ($25).
    Any other options...?

    Ride to next county? My neighbor was trapping racs a few years back and ran them out to a friends farm in the country. Of coarse, this never happened if asked.

    I'd say a Dr. Guitarguy's hot lead injection should do it...

    .22 short in the forehead they certainly aren't endangered I've had as many as 6 of them dancing on my roof at one time. Those all got Red Rydered right in the ***. That got them off the carport roof ASAP.

    Relocation just moves the problem and creates a new one for someone else.

    Why I only have indoor cats, lower vet bills, happier longer lives. All of mine have lived into their late teens and one even made it to 21. All rescue animals. Racoons are nasty omnivores, and carrion eaters, the only thing worse is a possum. They only come around for the food in the trash or the garden, remove the atraction and they will get the message.

    If you have one trapped then just put the trap in a garbage can...make sure its full of water first...

    Oregon law requires that animals trapped on your property have to be destroyed and buried on your property. You have to have a valid trappers license from the state to trap and remove animals from one place to another and they must be euthanized, not relocated. No joke, just went through it last year. Trapper took four animals off my 1/3 acre property, twelve from the neighborhood.

    Shoot it. Although .22's seem to take longer than .410 for the actual death dance to finish.

    I wouldn't put it in your vehicle alive - they stink and are ornery.

    Keep in mind it can be a bit messy to clean up if you live in a small lot. Us acreage guys just dig a hole or leave em out for the 'yotes.

    I have enough trouble with the coyotes without feeding them too.If you cant drown it or shoot it then you have to pay the racoon guy to do it for you.But dont relocate it,thats just you causing someone else trouble on purpose...Robin
