Raccoons are very cute creatures that make many people’s hearts melt – until a live encounter occurs. That’s when people realize a potential need for raccoon control. Raccoons are highly pervasive, intelligent and very, very temperamental. They get around very well in wooded areas, explore at night and love to find free meals. That makes them particularly troublesome around garbage cans and bird feeders.
Raccoons are adorable, they’re clever, and they remind us of little masked bandits. But as cute and innocent as they seem, they do not make ideal pets.
