Thread: raccoons on the roof

    Default raccoons on the roof

    They may look cute, but they do not belong on my roof. Anyone have recipes
    for cute raccoon stew?

    The one day, there was one lying in my gutter. It looked over at me, then
    put it's head down-- and went back to sleep... I heard if you play talk
    radio they get annoyed by that. I'm trying NPR and seems to be working.
    Not sure about them, but I know it's annoying me.

    They are vermin. I was talking to a guy at our block party yesterday who has them in his attic.

    Public radio only annoys them during pledge drive. Commercial stations are effective 24/7/365.

    cute vermin. I threw some stones at it the other day. My aim isn't what it
    used to be though and I hit one of my windows on the first floor... I never
    did hit the raccoon but got close and I think scared it some. It looked at
    me with it's little bashful eyes: why are you throwing stones at me?

    I felt bad. But damn thing pulled down some of the soffit... If NPR does
    get it to leave, I will have to go Waco 24 hours a day and blare Limbaugh.
    If Limbaugh doesn't get rid of it, I don't know what will.

    And how the hell did they get up on the roof? I have seen them around the
    neighborhood. Climbing in out of sewer grates (aka catch basins). My
    brother in SF says they are in the sewers out there too.

    The CD said they would send lyrics on request. So I sent a letter (this was
    back in the early 90s when people sent letters). Four years later the
    lyrics showed up. He apologized for the delay.

    Use the small ones. Remove *all* of the fat. Cook low and slow.
    Here's some recipes-- [I haven't tried them- I used to just toss them
    into a spaghetti sauce or stew]
    http://www.backwoodsbound.com/zracoon.html

    I would say the flavor is unique, but similar to pork.

    I'd be cautious. raccoons are notorious carriers of rabies. if
    they are out in the daytime, not afraid of you, or walking like a
    drunk, call animal control and have them removed.

    yeah, though cute they are kinda are scary with their HIV, etc. And they
    have yet to pay rent for this month.. (They are like women in some
    respects.) And what kinda of animal goes around wearing a mask? Do they
    think they are the Lone Ranger?

    I have my raccoon repelling rocks at the front and back door. And a
    yardstick upstairs, just in case they try to make a home invasion.

    I've no rabbits in my attic. Rabbits are cute, and docile. I see them in
    the yard once in a while, but all they do is stare at me and then run
    away... They are okay. No rabbit stews!

    Are they feasting in your garbage or what? Close the restaurant and
    they'll leave.

    They can and they will. Find and secure all food sources: garbage and
    pet food are the usual suspects and bring pet water bowls inside too.
    My neighbor had a stucco fence and when we replaced the fence on our
    property line, they discovered the stucco fence that was perpendicular
    to it not only wasn't finished off at the end, it had a family of
    raccoons living in it. They must be able to squeeze themselves
    through tight spaces because there wasn't much of a gap. In any case,
    the raccoons moved after they closed the hotel.

    You need to cut off any branches from trees or bushes that are
    allowing them to get up there. Make sure all your roof vents are
    secure from animal entrance. They can cause thousands of dollars of
    damage and get inside your house to cause more damage.
    Get busy. Forget the stew.

    If they have found their way in they will be trying to claim squatters
    rights if you trim branches or not. It is now their home and they will
    find a way to it and into it. The solution is to trap and move them or
    exterminate them.
