Proper Approach to a Caged Raccoon

The California raccoon inside the trap may act erratic and may acquire injury from its attempt to escape. You need to calm its nerves by approaching slowly and cautiously. Speak in a soft tone and take subtle steps. One way to calm them down is to cover the trap with a blanket. You need to act swiftly as soon as you noticed that the creature is already quiet. You certainly don't want the raccoon to beat around while you are carrying the trap since you can accidentally drop it. There are instances when the caged raccoon will not be persuaded by your simple attempt to pacify them. If you believe that you have the capacity to move it safely and prevent the animal from injuring itself, we encourage you to do so. 

Before you handle the cage, be sure that you are wearing thick gloves that will keep you safe from the scratches and bites of the coons. In case it is allowed under the local law, you need to relocate them at least 10 miles from the place where you trapped them to prevent them from returning to your house. Still, you should find a place where they will feel comfortable. It should have a direct source to water and food that will increase their chance of survival.

On the off chance that you acquired injury during the process, do not treat this lightly. They can possibly carry Santa Clarita diseases so you need to seek medical attention. After you relocate them, it is time for you to install deterrents that will prevent future infestation.
