They just shit (but a lot of it, in mulch around the back yard trees)....our garbage bins are too big and covered. There are no food sources that I know of.

Your little Arkie girlfriend would probably shoot the raccoons for him. She sheds her 'girl' status while hunting.

No she would probably turn it into a pet Ellie Mae Clampitt style, but coons are everywhere around here. Most people that live in the country have big dogs to deal with that kind of thing.

1. Get a rocking chair. 2. Get some lemonade. 3. Set out some food for the lil' critters. 4. Watch them play every night. They're hilarious.

"4. Watch them play every night. They're hilarious." This is true, but when they start knocking too much shit over I have to clear the deck with my Koho. They are usually back up in 15 minutes.

"This is true, but when they start knocking too much shit over I have to clear the deck with my Koho. They are usually back up in 15 minutes." Maybe you don't need six pink flamingos and a football team of lawn jockeys and garden gnomes in your yard.

"Maybe you don't need six pink flamingos and a football team of lawn jockeys and garden gnomes in your yard." Or maybe I DO... Besides, its not like I whack them, I just herd them. Generally a couple will run off as soon as I open the door, a couple more when I step out. maybe one or two need to be pushed toward the exit. I actually like raccoons, I'm not out there practicing my slapshot. BTW, I don't know where you are located, but Raccoons in the north are gigantic compared to those in the south. They can cause a lot of damage just goofing around. Ive had the take down gutter leaders while trying to climb up.

I'm in Kansas. Small raccoons here, about the size of a kitten. You know, like this. Nothing like those monster Northern Raccoonosaurus.

I've never seen the raccoons in Kansas, but the winters get cold there, no? The colder the climate in winter, the larger the raccoons (and bears and deer and most species of mammal in North America) tend to be. More mass to surface area helps get them throught the cold. I've seen the raccons in Florida, the coastal Carolinas and Georgia, and they are like hamsters compared to the raccoons up here in NY.

We have some fat fucking coons here, on account of no alligators to trim the population, I would imagine.

Hawkeye Fan has poisoned the correct.... Roccoons love anti-freeze.... Just be careful is you have a dog or a cat.... Put out anti-freeze for a week and you'll have a dozen neighbors coming over asking if you've seen their cat... Your friend, Moccaco

A lot of times when there is one coon, there are many. Depending on where you live this might turn into a weekly occurance for you. I would suggest a good dog or two. Somehow we had a family of possums living in one of our trees near our back fence once. Well after about 3 weeks of our dogs bringing us "presents" every couple of days the possum problem was handled.
