    We have used ammonia before. Straight up Janitorial industrial strength tear jerking ammonia.

    Wonder if that would work on raccoons

    This site says ammonia or moth balls will keep them away. Worth a shot

    Raccoon Repellent - Moth Balls, Ammonia, Sound Machine Deterrent
    I find you offensive for finding me offensive.

    There is a good YouTube video showing mothballs are no deterrent to mice...

    They are in an area because it will support them. Steady food source.

    The skunks that were living under my front porch literally pushed the mouth balls out of their den they had made.

    I got the raccoons out from under my mini barn and my neighbor's deck with ammonia.
    Buy some cheap tennis balls. They come in a sealed tube. Open the tube and fill it with ammonia and put the lid back on the balls are under the ammonia. Let them soak for a day. Then roll them into your crawlspace. The smell will drive them out.
    It is better to do good than not to do bad.

    You don't want to attempt to shoot that critter in the cage. It can get real messy and emotionally disturbing while you are torturing the critter to death trying to hit the moving target. Even if you get lucky, it's still messy with blood, brains, body fluids, etc.

    Drowning is the most humane way to handle this. It's over very quick.

    There is plenty of water around Columbus. Make a dry run to figure the best place for you in advance. Easy access, least mud, few eyes watching, not iced in, etc. Public access boat ramps are good.

    Just drop the roped cage in the water for 3-5 minutes and drag it back out. It'd be great if the waterway was moving and appropriate for putting the body back into. Other critters gotta eat too.

    If you don't have a truck, figure in advance how to protect your carpet from urine, droppings, claws and teeth. Leather gloves are handy and a long dog leash with a clip is a very good rope for the cage.

    Plan to leave quickly so you are less likely to have to deal with looky lews asking why you didn't like your pet cat.
