I have to wonder about certain things in life.
Relocation of a racoon makes it another person's problem.
"Oh we released this one in the wilds, nobody living around the area"
Raccoons usually do not go far from their home range and will stay in a certain territory when they are scavenging, although they can sometimes move up to 10 miles in search of food or mate.

OKπŸ‘ πŸ‘Œ
So nobody within 10 miles, thinking ya right.

Here is something that some should absorb.

Trapping a raccoon and moving it to a new, unfamiliar location – even one that looks nice to us – is stressful and bewildering for the animal. Relocated raccoons almost never survive more than a month or two in their new environment.
Solution is do the humane act, put them down.

Transfers have to compete with what exists. Amid current dispersal of a given site or territory's young when it's time. Adding to the ping ponging over invisible (but often scented) borders. And some of the fights we hear at night out back.

Another legit concern is than disease or illness can be transferred as well.
Young or inexperienced can be easy to catch ; but so can those in early stages of degeneration.
Just as certain visible individuals can be a red flag during the day.

Often what we see is a minority. So what is what we don't see?
Showed a neighbor deer browse along the road at a popular crossing area.. More since and no sightings for a while. The neighbor across the road with the many thousands into his landscaping doesn't applaud them. But doesn't kill or eat them either.
They will sample his offerings again eventually. No surprise to anyone.
Were it his livelihood or health threatened ; things would be different.

In Ohio it violates the law to trap raccoons and move them to someone else's property, you can relocate them on your own property or put them down.

City telling rural how to live-love it.


I actually live out in the boonies. Google "Scituate, Rhode Isand" if you'd like to confirm that fact. Many of my neighbors own chickens, cows, horses and goats. But none of them feel the need to shoot raccoons or any other critter. They protect their animals with proper fencing and shelter. If they did shoot any animals near me, I would call the cops on them and they would be fined or jailed. We don't tolerate morons shooting guns anywhere near a neighbor's property in this state.

No insults please...

Gare lives in the country in Ohio, under Ohio law it is legal to shoot raccoons that are a nuisance.

I grew up under a simple farmers law/rule.(Sherpa ruling)
If another critter no matter what is bothering livestock no matter what life stock.
They have the right to shoot it, on the spot.
So if your dog walks in my yard, sorry for the dog
Period.

Population of 10K
That's of our whole township of 280 sq.miles.
So you live in a small city.

In Rhode Island, this state law allows a property owner to kill, by legal means, any furbearer (as defined in RIGL 20-16-1) that is killing or attempting to kill any livestock or domestic animals, destroying crops, creating a health hazard, or causing economic damage to their property.
I guess that can be put in the pipe and smoke that one.:headbang:

Sorry, you're all wrong. While it's legal to shoot a raccoon in Rhode Island, you cannot fire any weapon within 500 feet of someone's property. That's why I would call the cops on them and that's why they would be fined or jailed for the offense.

Yeah. Typical Timmy.
Rather than post anything resembling law , just post personal opinion.
(You spelled island wrong. Are you sure you live there?)

Silly comment. Just a typo regarding my spelling of Rhode Island. Old keyboard, I guess. As for calling me Timmy, that's pretty childish, don't you think?
