Wild animals can be a nuisance, getting in your trash, eating your birdseed, and even sneaking into your garden to eat your fruits and vegetables. I haven't personally had a problems with wild animals in years, mostly because I don't live in a rural area. (Or is it maybe because I just don't notice?) Either way, if I were to have problems with wild animals such as raccoons getting into my trash, first of all I'd have to call my local humane society to see what I should do. I don't know if they would recommend trapping it or if they would send someone to get it. I would definitely want the animal to be treated fairly and humanely, because when I was growing up my parents had neighbors who had two pet raccoons and I used to be around them quite often.
I imagine that if the Humane Society recommended that I should trap the animal and release it later, I would use a Havahart Easy Set Small Animal Trap or a Havahart Easy Set Large Animal Trap, after looking up Animal Trapping Tips, because I honestly have no clue!
To be honest, I don't want anything to happen to any animals so trapping them and relocating them to a more suitable area would be the best course of action. The Easy Set Small and Large Animal Traps are the safest that I've seen - there's a barrier between where I would be and the animal, so that would make me feel more secure. These traps are perfect for first time trappers such as myself, and are easy to use.
