Trapped!


The problem with an angry raccoon in your Havahart trap is ... you have to open the door and let him out.

Reminds me of a Carl Perkins song - "that must be your gal, mine don't look like that - you know my gal, she's so-o-o big and fat!"
I know that's not *my* raccoon; my raccoon is as big as a medium size dog. give that little guy a ride, just don't bring him up here ;-)

I agree with Sophie Mae - that would be a video to see! Better have your running shoes on LOL

Try that with a skunk. Then we'll have a beer and laff about it.

This thing looks like a poodle in a raccoon suit. What a tiny critter.

Yow! Do they have a lot of rabies down there? Up here we are real careful of them.

Dani said...

Ha! She's just a little peeved.

Sophie,
I considered it, but he was so ticked,and I was in a hurry that morning.

Emma,
He fell for some old boiled peanuts.

Deb,
A bit of rope for a running head start, bracing the trap against a tree, and a strong jerk on the rope to open the door.
We both survived.

Anon,
Our raccoons are already getting ready for bikini season.

SCM,
I did!

Freste,
Is the beer for getting rid of the smell?
Hmmm ... perhaps it was a poodle in a racoon suit... they are very clever dogs, those poodles.


3C,
I view every raccoon as a simmering petri dish of rabies. Super cautious around them.


Dani,
Very, very snarly.


Kitty,
I'm sure I will be making that one someday if I keep setting this trap by the garbage cans! LOL

S/he looks a bit skinny and hungry. I hope those peanuts were yummy, and worth the indignity of the trap.
