According to animal rescuers, you have a better chance of being struck by lightning than finding an albino raccoon in the wild. Sounds like the people who found this one should go buy a lottery ticket. An albino raccoon was found injured in Pennsylvania. Rescuers say he was brought in with an infected wound on his back. The little guy is expected to make a full recovery. InsideEdition.com’s Keleigh Nealon (http://twitter.com/KeleighNealon) has more.

How Do You Keep Raccoons Out of Your Yard? [Manatee County, FL]
Raccoons are Omnivores
Raccoons are omnivores, which means that they eat a wide variety of foods including both plants and animals. Their diet is mainly fruits, nuts, worms, insects, amphibians, fish, birds eggs and even an occasional small mammal or bird. If raccoons find that there is an abundant source of food on your property, they will probably take it rather than make the effort to hunt. This also includes your vegetable gardens– they look at it as a food buffet or in that case a salad bar! The biggest mistake people make is leaving pet food outdoors. Trash is another lure for the furry fellows. It is widely recommended that you get secured trash can lids and keep it secured in the garage if at all possible. Bird feeders are also no-nos for anyone who does not want to attract the “wrong” type of wildlife to their area. How do you keep raccoons out of your yard? #1 Remove any possible food source.
Raccoons are Nocturnal
Nocturnal creatures prefer to hunt when it is dark outside so that they are camouflaged and it makes them feel safer. If a raccoon should meander into your area, you could dissuade them from advancing by utilizing motion lights and or loud sounds. A simple light by the door may not be enough for a stubborn raccoon though. Auto lights activated by motion in several areas are more likely to startle them and keep them away. Since they don’t like human interaction, the Humane Society even recommends putting an am radio near your trash can with a talk station on. How do you keep raccoons out of your yard? #2 Remove their nocturnal and quiet habitat.
The everyday normal fence does not help in keeping raccoons out because they are such good climbers as well as diggers. If you are having an ongoing problem with raccoons in various areas such as gardens, yards, homes etc., either chicken wiring or an electrified fence is a good choice. How do you keep raccoons out of your yard? #3 Install chicken wire or electric fencing to prevent them getting into places where they are not wanted!

What Does it Mean When You See a Raccoon During the Day?
Is there a food source available?
Was the raccoon frightened?
Is there high competition in the area at night from other nocturnal animals?
It is a fairly well known myth that if you see a raccoon walking around during the day, that it is sick or that it has rabies. Even though raccoons normally are most active at night (nocturnal) they can take up activity during the day for a variety of different reasons.
What is considered normal activity?
If you see a raccoon that is behaving responsively during the day it is probably fine. They might come out during the day if there is some food available, or if they have been scared from their daytime sleeping spot, or if there is a high competition in the area from other nocturnal animals. It is very common to see baby raccoons during the day, while the mother raccoons might be out looking for food.
What is not normal?
It is never normal for an adult raccoon to show symptoms like loss of balance, difficulty walking or lethargy. If you see a raccoon acting this way, or if one is bleeding or injured contact a professional wildlife trapper.

First of all and probably the most important thing to do to get rid of a raccoon on Longboat Key is to protect your trash! There’s no reason for the raccoon to leave if you keep a food source available for them. To get started, pick up some metal garbage cans, bungee strap cords, and a cement block. Once you have the garbage can strapped down with the cord, place your cement block on top. Next, be sure to keep your yard cleaned up from stuff that a raccoon would want. For example, try not to leave any pet food out overnight.. also not any fruit from fruit trees. Bird feeders will also have to be brought in for several weeks. Once they notice that the food source is no longer there, they will stop coming around. Make them feel unwelcome. Actually the only way to probably do that is to put up a barbed wire or electric fence around any vegetable garden areas. Almost any fence can become electric by adding one strand of wire about 8 inches back from the fence. Employ some scare tactics.. There are devices designed to scare off unwelcomed invaders that work well. The problem comes in because raccoons are so smart and they realize that most of what you put out there can’t really do them any harm. An example would be a motion detector device such as floodlights or radios (set to talk radio) as raccoons would avoid human voices and even sprinklers.

Raccoons are usually not intimidated by people and they are also good at swimming. Combine those two traits together and you are at risk of losing your munchies. That is what this paddle boarder found out near the shore line of a North American river. This paddlers amazement turned into fear when she observed the raccoon swimming out toward her kayak. All of a sudden, he grabbed her knapsack full of treats and she had to engage in a tug of war to get them back! After a real minor altercation and a gentle bonk on the head, the raccoon stepped away in defeat. Not to worry fella, there are always plenty of garbage cans out there that won’t fight with you! Check out our post on how to keep raccoons out of trash cans here!

Unprovoked Raccoon Attacks, Bites, 13-Year Old Girl
June 5, 2017
Here is the scenario. It could have been the most normal father and daughter stroll around the neighborhood, but it became an emergency room visit. The reason was that a raccoon came out of the bushes and bit a little girl on the leg–totally unprovoked!
It was described that in late May evening around 5:45 a father and 13 year old daughter were walking and talking together near the entrance of their neighborhood subdivision around the Cape Coral, FL area. The daughter was said to be less than 5 feet in front of the father when she heard a growling noise from the bushes, followed by a raccoon coming at her that immediately bit on to her leg. When she screamed, the raccoon finally let go.
By the way, if you see raccoons around your property, or think you have them present in your home, please contact a professional! You can click to contact us here24/7 at Nuisance Wildlife Removal, Inc. or call 1-866-263-WILD or 729-2103.
It was thought that either the raccoon was rabid or trying to protect her babies. The animal caused the girls shin to bleed and the father immediately took her to the hospital for treatment. According to the Center for Disease Control, when a human is bitten by an animal, at first there may not be any symptoms. But weeks, or even months after a bite, rabies can cause pain, fatigue, headaches, fever, and irritability. These are followed by seizures, hallucinations, and paralysis. Human rabies are almost always fatal.

She was given two shots, and advised to return on day 3,7 and 14 for further treatment. Although costs can vary, a course of rabies treatment commonly exceeds $3,000.

Providing information to you with regards to Free Raccoon Removal in Manatee County
Do you have an overturned trash can with it’s lid gone missing? An empty place where you previously had fruit or vegetables in your garden area? Did you happen to notice any noises in the attic or chimney area recently? If yes, you may have a raccoon issue. Chances are that you would like to find a free raccoon removal service in Manatee County.
Are all raccoons really bad?
No they are not, however they can be quite menacing and naughty. It has to do with their true nature because this is how they were created, in order to survive and adapt to different surroundings. The reason why a lot of folks think they are bad is due to the amount of damage and trouble they can cause. They can break, destroy and bring major disorder into your home and life. How can they do this? Raccoons are very adaptable and have many different abilities. They will make every attempt to gain entry into your home, whether it is through an opening in a soffit, vent, or even chewing through a rotten area on your roof.
Is there a free raccoon removal service available in Manatee County?
If a raccoon has already settled in your attic or chimney, you could expect a more costly expenditure than what a free raccoon removal service would offer. Why is that? First of all, if the work requires risks, then only an expert should be able to do this, and there would be a cost associated with that. [THE WORK REQUIRES RISKS] Secondly, does the service provided involve long work? Would it require an overnight process as well as return visits? That would mean more expensive work as it would be rather time consuming. [TO TRAP REPEATED ANIMALS AND SEAL ALL THE ENTRY POINTS WOULD REQUIRE RETURN VISITS]
Thirdly, how is the raccoon?
Each raccoon is unique and one must never guess as to any raccoon’s temperament. Some raccoons are not shy at all, if that is the case, you should definitely NOT corner them. If by chance you are facing a mother raccoon, or a sick raccoon, that is particularly dangerous and so therefore, would certainly not be a free raccoon removal in Manatee County. Nuisance Wildlife removal, Inc. provides a professional raccoon removal service in Manatee and other surrounding areas, and we would like to hear about your particular situation and be your trusted expert.
Now that you understand the modus operandi of raccoons, you can understand that these are wild animals looking to survive and pro-create and will do whatever they require, in order to be sure nature has her way. So therefore, in order to get rid of them, this is a professional service that merits a cost. Therefore there is not a free raccoon removal in Manatee County. Please call a licensed wildlife removal professional to assist you with the protection of your home and your property today.

I just want to Thank Jeff and the Nuisance Wildlife team for the bat house, or as we like to call it, the bat condo. We have seen a few bats where we live in Deland and there are lots of mosquitoes for them to feast on since we live on a lake. I am so excited and can't hardly wait for them to take up residence in the bat condo. I will definitely send pictures once they have arrived and get settled in.
Thanks again Jeff for taking it to Joe @Aegis so he could bring it to us in Deland, Fl.
