Small but Major Problem

Ok so I went and met up with some friends at a bar. Then I went to Miejers in Belleville to grab a few things. As I came out of Miejers I threw a candy bar wrapper in the bed of my truck. Guess what happened, I got growled at by a baby coon. It is fully covered with fur. But you can deffinately tell it was born this spring or summer. Anyways I drive home, Get home and safely check. Sure enough he is still in the bed of the truck. Ok so I get my live trap, a can of tuna and set up in the bed of the truck. Now lets see what I have in the morning. Do you think I will have a coon in the trap.

Now if I do have a coon in the trap, what can I do with it. I mean technically it is illegal to transport or to move wild animals. So what can I do. Do I call animal control to come get it. Do I take it as a nusiance and get rid of it in that way..

I always drive the ones I trap two miles away to the river and let them go. Most cops wouldn't even take the effort to crawl up and see in the bed of my truck.

Go somewhere remote, drop the tailgate, and broom it out. Who needs the headache.

I'd say just let it go somewhere. That's all animal control is gonna do anyway right? Just be careful y'know.

That's another way to do it! A cruel ... and disturbing ... but effective way.

I used to have 7-8 that I would feed,...well....come to find out...once they get a "scent" of the area,...it doesn't matter how far away you take them...THEY WILL FIND THEIR WAY BACK!.

They nested in my attic one winter, destroyed the insulation, had babies, and crapped & pissed up there.

Eliminate the problem before it can cause future issues.
