Oh, and if anyone wants some pet raccoons, I'm adopting them out. No re-homing fee. Good with cats, dogs and they love babies/kids.
If it is a family of raccoons, it is actually better if you get have a pest control company come in and place a scented pack that will actually deter the family to leave. Trapping and relocating is typically a death wish if the family is young. Wildlife rehabbers usually recommend to wait until the family is old enough and they will leave on their own. The mother keeps the area very clean and will actually consumer any feces so once they leave, you will not even know they were ever even there.
If you must relocate them, get a pest control company that does humane relocation which includes the scent deterrent. The mom will move them herself and they will have a much better chance of survival.
