Female Raccoons have started to give birth!

Raccoons and other wild animals have been moving to the city because it’s easier to get food and find shelter than in their natural environment.

Here I would like to familiarise you with the Raccoon! There playful antics,
and personality is something to share with children as they forage for grubs and
play in bird baths. But keep your distance from them, as the mother raccoon is
extremely protective of her young!

A Raccoon is an animal that prefers dim light or darkness. There eyes are
adapted to low light conditions, and bright sunlight will hurt its eyes. A
raccoon will actually hide its eyes if the sun comes out and is too bright. If
you see a raccoon outside on a sunny day, don’t go near it! It is not acting
normally, and could be sick!

A Raccoon is a medium sized animal found in North America. She gets as big as
50 pounds in some areas, and live as long as 12 years, although the average is 6
years. The female Raccoon can have Baby Raccoons after she is a
year old, and has an average litter of 4 baby raccoons. She will have her babies
in a hole in the ground, or a hollow tree, or in an attic of a
home where she has been on the roof! Raccoons like to climb on roofs and play in
trees like monkeys. Most times they will climb tree branches to get on a roof,
but sometimes they will climb a support pole, or a gutter down spout to get
there.  Feeding raccoons can be fun to watch, but may not be
such a good idea in the city. Neighbors may blame you for them having a raccoon
in an attic. So, make sure before you feed raccoons that your neighbors are
alright with it.

Raccoons in attics will poop and pee all over insulation, and require all insulation to be removed and disinfect, and deodorized. Costing thousands of dollars in all cities of San Diego.

Raccoons can get sick, and do carry parasites that you can pick up too. Fleas, ticks, and lice can get picked up from raccoons! Raccoon round worm is an intestinal parasite which raccoons can pass to people. Raccoon Roundworm spores are in the poop of a raccoon (we call them raccoon droppings)   These spores can be dried in the raccoon droppings, and blow with the wind when disturbed. It can got into your eye, or lungs, then incubate into a worm!

Pet Raccoons The idea of having a pet raccoon some look forward to realizing. But the truth is, that raccoons are wild animals. They should be left in the wild. A sick or injured raccoon should be cared for by a rehabilitater with a license issued by the state. Raccoons need to be dewormed and have shots to protect from distemper and rabies.
