What are some humane ways to kill a raccoon?
There are different ways to deal with trapped raccoon. Some people
choose to kill them but if this is going to be your choice, it has
to be done in the most humane way possible. There are different
methods to trap a raccoon, used by people in different states in
order to control raccoon invasion. Different ways to catch a raccoon
or to kill it afterwards can lead to different types of deaths and
it is always better to choose the method that will quickly kill an
animal, without causing unnecessary suffering. Wild animals are not
the ones that can be kept as pets in homes. These are also not
allowed to be entered in homes, attic, or any place where the human
are to move about. This is just because of the threats and dangers
which is caused by the wild animal’s presence.
The snap traps
These traps work on a spring that releases as soon as raccoon
touches the bait. Snapping mechanism is very strong and swift so it
will kill a raccoon in no time, causing no pain or suffering as
animal dies on the spot.
The live traps
Live traps are often chosen as a method to capture a raccoon. This
is very effective method as long as you keep catching it often so
that raccoon doesn't dehydrate or stresses out for too long for
being trapped. After raccoon has been caught you can take it to
vet's office for humane euthanasia. You can also contact a rehabber.
What are other options?
When you find yourself battling against a large raccoon family,
especially if you keep seeing them one season after another, you
will probably become desperate and start thinking about other
options, such as shooting or poisoning. Although poison might seem
as the safe solution and the solution that always leads to the end
result-dead raccoon-it is important to think about all possible
outcomes. For one, if you have one or more pets, it is very possible
that your pet pet will accidentally eat poisoned bait and get sick
or die. There is also a matter of poisoned raccoon's location of
death. It is not like a poisoned raccoon will die
immediately-instead, it will crawl away and die somewhere else in
your house-and you will become aware of its death only after he
starts to decompose and your house becomes stinky.
