Tis the Season – Return of Roosting Raccoons

“Dear PoPville,

I think we have a raccoon family living in the roof of our porch and I want to get rid of them without killing them. Is that possible?

We had a little bird nest last summer that we didn’t worry too much about. But by wintertime, the squirrels kicked the birds out, and now it seems that a raccoon family has moved in. I saw the raccoon climbing on our brick house (it was much bigger than I imagined!) and my husband has seen the mama raccoon be joined by three little babies. They are doing a lot of damage to the porch, as you can imagine, so we want them out. But will the city resettle them or kill them? Any leads on the most compassionate way to handle this situation is?”

Ed. Note: I always recommend Adcock Trapping.
