Getting Rid of Mean Raccoons

We live on the edge of a forest and farm land and the raccoons have gotten mean to the deer by jumping on their heads out of trees. We set up game cameras to watch the wild life and see the newborn fawn, but so far the doe are really protective holding back the babies.


Our neighbor across the road has cattle and the raccoons have attacked some of his mamma cows and bit off a teat which throws them in a tail spin. The cows are more gentle then the deer and the raccoons can approach them quicker and bite off a teat and haul butt. We have trapped four of them. But how do we solve this problem with them in a cow pasture?

The best way is to live trap each coon and release in a wooded with water area several miles from your area. They often return to the area they like as it has the food and water they need. The further you release them the better. We had a similar problem and my husband (biologist) believes this is the most effective method.

To say I dislike raccoons is putting it mildly. We had them chew 7 holes in our roof making it necessary to replace the roof, even the plywood part because it was soft enough for them to go through it. They got in the house and we ended up having to pay big bucks to have them trapped. I have never heard of them being that aggressive before and would worry about rabies.


Best thing is to trap and remove them far away, really far away so they don't return. For our house, we had to spray coyote urine you get at the Outdoors shop around the house. Not really workable for such a large area as you are describing. My main concern is why are they so aggressive.
