Location: Cortlandt Manor, NY
Job Type: Raccoon Removal, Emergency Services
While out checking traps a call was received about a raccoon chewing and scratching on a second floor deck off a bedroom during the daytime. The client had said it had been there sleeping for most of the day. She even sent a small video of it pulling bits of wood off of the railing. Upon our arrival we found the raccoon next to the house in a closed off section amongst lawn furniture. After trying to snare it the raccoon slipped free and climbed up a nearby tree. A trap was set as we waited for it to climb down. During all of this the raccoon was making strange whining noises along with growls and purrs. Once the raccoon reached the ground it inspected the trap then ran to the other side of the house where we again tried to snare it. It again climbed up a nearby tree, this time getting to the roof and returning to the deck. A third attempt to snare it on the deck failed so a trap was again set on the deck where it was finally captured within minutes.
