I know there was a recent thread on Racoon trapping but I have trapped them plenty of times and am having one that is a little too brazen. It is coming out during the daytime and harassing the dog. It has no real fear it seems and walks around until I yell at it and stomp my feet. I moved into a new house and do not want to take a shot with anything as I do not want to give a poor first impression....Plus it is always during the day and it is coming to the front right where the neighbors can see....if it comes into the back it will meet a pellet rifle. I have had my trap out with chicken, then tuna, then cat food, dog food, and marshmallows....I have tried everything I know how to do including dripping mountain lion pee on the ground. Does this thing have rabies? Is it just so brazen because it is smart enough to avoid a trap? WTF someone who has dealt with a smarter than average coon help me out!?!?! I may just talk to my neighbors if it continues and see if they want me to "eliminate the threat" in my own way. Any advice would be great....even if you can just tell me what might get it to come around at night so I can drop it with as few eyes on me as possible. If it goes closer to the dog it is a goner but it seems to be just taunting....little bastard.
