Raccoons are one of Florida’s most common animals, which are found very often in urbanized spaces. They can be seen in parks,  neighborhoods and on campgrounds. Under most circumstances, they are fun to watch and mostly not harmful as long as they are left alone. The problems arise due to people’s desire to give them food. Being the intelligent animals that raccoons are,  they will eat almost anything. The problem comes in to play when raccoons start thinking of humans as a food source! Raccoons can become enormous nuisances.. they will take the lids off of metal garbage cans, work their way into your porches, garages, and sheds. In fact, it is ILLEGAL to feed a raccoon as per Florida Statute 68A-4.001.
