I trapped another raccoon last night! This makes the third one, and the second in a month. I don't know how they are getting in! I was tempted to tie a string around it's neck and let it go, then follow the string. But the string would probably break and I would have to try to catch it again.
I don't know what is so special about our house to attract them or why they feel the need to make themselves at home. I remember reading about the hobo's that rode the trains. They would leave markings on the side walk in front of houses to let others know if they would get a handout or not. I wonder if the animal kingdom has this same principle. Maybe I've been marked by the raccoon kingdom as a safe house.
Maybe that's what my next job will be. Raccoon whisperer?!
