If you have a raccoon in your home, it’s imperative that you take action quickly. In terms of pests and unwanted guests in your space, raccoons may be at the top of your list. They are savages. Even just outside of your property, they will knock over your garbage cans, tear up your lawn, terrorize your pets and leave feces that may carry parasites that can be transferred to you or your pets. So, can you even fathom the damage done inside your home? Racoons like to take refuge in your chimney, attics, and even under the house.
We’ve all seen the you tube videos and adorable pictures on the internet that depict raccoons to be cute, friendly, and downright lovable animals. However cuddly looking these four legged creatures may be, they are not friendly guests. In fact, many times when a raccoon is approaching a human or acting out of character, they have rabies and can transmit it to you. If you encounter a raccoon on your Twin Cities, MN property, don’t try and touch it. Instead, call your expert professionals at Minnesota Wild Animal Management, Inc.
