Why We Need to Show More Compassion to Raccoons
It’s easy to see raccoons as pesky intruders who bring inconvenience, disease, and damage to your Whitby home. But what do you see when you look beyond all this? Expert wildlife technicians will agree that what you’ll find underneath are some truly lovable wildlife citizens who are simply trying to survive. This is why raccoon control in Whitby should always be done through humane strategies.
Some people use traps and poisons to get rid of raccoons on their property. This is both cruel and dangerous. The poor raccoons who become victims of these harsh control methods, suffer immense pain, maiming and often death. Pets and people also become victims. Small children and pets may end up ingesting the poison set for raccoons and this can be deadly. The traps can also cause serious injury to pets who get caught in them. These methods are harmful and to make matters worse they do nothing to prevent more raccoons from intruding on your property.
