These little buggers were chased up a tree this morning by my dog who barked inside the house. lol
One fell down and ran away but two are still up there.
I put my dog outside so they stay up there.

We cut down our hedges next to the house but they climb the house to get up to the roof.Bears can do this as well if you have wood around your home. Their claws just dig in.
They are unbelievably smart.You fix eves they pull them apart and then run around till they break them and fall through. Then they climb back up.

So far I caught six and took them far away over the bridge, where I hope they will not find their way back but we get more and more.

They are persistent and do not take no for an answer.

Now they know the cage and will not go inside for food . I guess they saw their friends getting caught.

The young ones are rather friendly if you let them be but the older ones can be very big and ferocious.
Not very welcome guests.

Have a good Hump Day Wednesday.

Blue dreamer - yes the only other way is with a net but you risk getting

I surprised a raccoon on our deck the other night, but we usually don't have much of a problem with them. We have a bigger problem with squirrels. We've trapped and released far from home about 50 of them, but they still over-run our bird feeders.

That's sounds so strange to me ! I only see them in a zoo ! they are so cute, why do you chase them away are they annoying ? I would keep them all ! They look like little Teddybears !

George - The squirrels began this saga. They made a hole in the eves. Then the birds came to build nests and then the coons came for the eggs and decided it was a good place to stay lol

Gattina - they are vicious . You do not want to be attacked by one.
