Conn. WCOs had a tagging and radio collar program few years back. Adult coons caught in attic were collared and young were ear tagged. Don't know the numbers but heard most returned to the type of site they were caught or born in.

I've always wondered how many animals that are relocated survive. Stress, loss of shelter, territories, roads, predators, etc must really take a toll on them.

Some of the tribes have been tagging and relocating beaver here. Some of those have turned up on WCO jobs.

As far as a do it yourself tag, a small zip tie in the ear would work. I've never done spray paint but you can get colored hair spray at party supply stores that would work with little ill effect. Some pigeon fanciers use hair spray for marking birds. Lasts quite a while but isn't permanent. A hot pink coon would be something to see randomly cross the road.

National Band & Tag Company sells cheap metal bands and tags you could permanently mark animals with, to see if they did return. I buy a lot of bird bands from them. They have all sizes of ear tags too.

Livestock marking paints (even paintballs) are available from many sources; a couple are listed below. I experimented with some on squirrels and raccoons about 25 years ago. I released one marked squirrel in the same yard in which it was captured. I did see it a few more times before it disappeared. Squirrels and raccoons released a few miles from where caught were never seen again.
