Hi everyone,

My neighbour has a racoon and (I believe) three babies living under their shed.

She's called the City and the MNR but they won't deal with it. I was surprised the City wouldn't do something, it contreaves the bylaws for one thing as well as being a public health hazard.

I'm guessing then the only option is to arrange something privately, hire a trap and/or trapper? How much would this cost? Any reccomendations? She's also pretty poor and wanted to avoid the private route. I'll help her with costs if need be.

Thanks for reading and any input.

Sean

there is a trapper in town. he will release them on some property of his if you ask him to. its somewhere between 50-100. but are they causing any problem.s why do they need to be removed? my neighbour has had several broods under his shed over the years with no problems in the neighbourhood. i have only seen 1 once and they are almost right behind me.

not everyone wants wild animals living in their yard, especially if kids play there.
