Many citizens of Norfolk County have been calling the police to complain about raccoons. Police are requesting residents for the third time this year, that this is not a situation the OPP is trained for. The most recent call to 911 was due to a raccoon on a Norfolk resident’s front porch. But before the officer reached their home, the call was cancelled because the raccoon had run away into the brush. Officials want to remind citizens that although raccoons are considered nocturnal animals, it is very likely to see them out and about during the day for food, or for many other reasons. Contrary to popular belief, day activity of raccoons does not always indicate that a raccoon is sick.

If you are experiencing problems with raccoons, Hawkeye can help you. We have licenced wildlife trappers that can use live traps to catch any nuisance wildlife on your property. Once in the trap the client is given two options either relocation or euthanasia in accordance to the customer’s needs. Some raccoons are aggressive, causing destruction, or harbouring disease, in which case euthanasia is the most likely solution. We are fully licenced and follow the guidelines for euthanasia set out by the Ontario veterinary medical association. We are also about to relocate the animal. In this situation Environment Canada limits the relocation to within only 1 kilometer of where they were found. Raccoons can travel over 6 km in a day, so the likelihood of that raccoon returning to your property is high. 

Here are some tips to make sure you aren’t attracting raccoons to your property:

  • Make sure your garbage is kept in a secure location – raccoons have a very keen sense of smell and will be attracted to your property if there is available access to food.
  • Get an inspector to check for leaks or damage to the infrastructure of your shed or roof – raccoons can smell rotting wood, and will remove shingles and tear through the wood to find a warm place to nest.
