I was nicely cooking a couple of lamb chops on my BBQ tonight when I was interrupted by a Raccoon climbing up my house. I sprayed it with water, but it kept on climbing and then just looked back at me from the roof.
I live on Cannes Circle and this is the first time in five years that I see a Raccoon in this area. I’ve seen a skunk who likes to use the park for nightly walks, but I never thought that there will be Raccoons any time soon as we don’t have big trees. So I am assuming that since there are no suitable trees, that this fellow decided to move to my roof or attic. Could also be a female looking to put her young somewhere…..Obviously I don’t know much about raccoons.
If anyone knows what the Raccoon situation is in our development or if you have any idea on what I should do, please leave your comments.
Here are some photos showing raccoon damage on roofs:
