We live in a urban area, 2 years ago 2 raccoons show up and started eating the cat food we keep outside, this went on for a couple of weeks so we stoped leaving the food outside, then they started in the garden tearing it up, winter came and we did not see them for a couple of months.After that we saw them a few more times, now about 14 months later they showed back up 4 younger ones. We think our neighbors a few doors down had made pets out of them, when they moved out they showed back up. Now we have 6 hungry raccoons, when you go outside at night they come running up making a funny noise and seems like they are begging for food. They have ate all the dates in the palm trees, digging holes in the yards and garden, HELP.
We are animals lovers, but we do not want to feed them and they will not go away. We have 4 huge palm trees in our yard and we think they are now living in them. Does anyone have any answers ?
Animal control will not do anythig, is it possible to trap all 6 and move them to the forrest?
