    Racoons are dirty, nasty fuckers. I'd call a professional. But if you took a flame-thrower to it, it would be more fun for us, especially with pics.

    Easy, get a have a heart cage and put dry cat food in it. They can't resist it. Then take him 10 miles away and release. Warning, they get crazy when trapped so watch your hands and throw a towel over cage so he can't see you. Point the opening away from you and they will run like hell. Put towels down because 3 of the 6 we trapped shit and pissed out of fear I guess and you don't want that in your car trunk.

    Years ago when I had to remove them from our garage I went on YouTube to see what to expect.


    More importantly, how are they getting in, you need to deal with that.

    I blocked off the entry point by nailing a 2x4 across the hole.

    "raccoon in the attic"
    Sounds like code for "gerbil in the ol' poop chute" Richard Geer!

    No, please don't kill it. call a professional to come and remove it.
    raccoons are nasty little critters, but still... it didn't mean to get caught up there in your house. lol
    they're like large angry cats but with hands haha

    If you live in the city, you're better off calling a professional. I live out in the country so my husband and sons built their own trap then when one gets caught, we shoot the fucker.

    Only half correct.

    Kill the fucking thing and put its head on a pike as warning to all other comers.

    If I go after it with my ax I'll set up a helmet cam and live stream it.
