    I had some skunks (7 of them) trapped and taken away by a commercial guy. Not cheap, but not terrible.

    I borrowed a trap and got the two raccoons that were living in my tree. I drove them about 7-8 miles out into the country and let them go.

    Our animal control will come and take a wild animal if it's in your house. Otherwise, it's up to me to deal with them.

    I know somebody with a coon trap but I can only imagine how messy it will get blasting it with my 45acp...
    If you have to kill it, a bucket of water big enough to hold the trap will be a lot less messy then shooting it. Easier on the cage, too.

    I catch chipmunks with a bucket full of water. Highly effective. And no noise.

    Here's what I found on the DNR website:

    Resident landowners and tenants can trap a raccoon that is causing damage on their own property without a permit from the DNR. The raccoon must be euthanized or released within the county of capture on private property in which you have permission to release the raccoon. In order to prevent the spread of disease, the DNR encourages homeowners to safely and humanely euthanize the raccoons, if possible. If you do not want to trap the raccoon yourself, contact a licensed nuisance wild animal control operator.

    Regardless of legality, relocation of pests like raccoons should not even be a thought. No one wants someone else's pest relocated to their doorstep.

    I watched a big female coon lay a major ass whoopin on a 50 pound dog once. The fight wasn't even close. Mean little bastages.
