When a city dwelling raccoon is moving from property to property, do they have a preference for staying closer to homes and cover, or do they just take the easiest, shortest route from place to place even if it means walking near or on sidewalks?

And, once in a yard, do they prefer traveling near fences, hedges or on ledges?

they go where they want, until they see some one then will crowd the fence lines and bushes. some coon work from storm drain to storm drain. but in the middle of the night no one around they just go where they want.

Thanks for that.

Does it matter then, where you'd place a trap in a yard to catch them?

There was a TV show hosted I believe by David Suzuki that did a study on raccoons they were radio colored in Vancouver and it shows the path that they chose
Very interesting how they would avoid streets and other things that were danger when they had their kit
The show goes on to show Germany and to bet the damages that of occurred and some of the ways that they're combating it in a humane way ha ha

I think so

Another great watch if you can find it is the wolves of Chernobyl
It's amazing how the wildlife is taking over that part of Russia

apparently Toronto is the raccoon capitol of the world and has 50 times more raccoons than an area in the country side of the same size. Also learned that city raccoons tend to have small territories and avoid crossing major roads. They get fat and lazy, have bad teeth and high blood pressure - lol - just like some people in cities! But on the upside, they breed more successfully and live longer. All good stuff, I say keep em coming! I have plenty of cage traps for big, lazy city coons!
Urbancoon, are you in Toronto?

No, not Toronto.

Good summary of the video, btw. What I don't understand is that if raccoon roundworm is so nasty, why don't we hear of more of this occurring there, or is it happening and we just don't hear about it?

Iíve covered raccoon roundworms as a safety topic at work several times. Know how it was received? Crickets.......


I make sure I wash my hands after touching Boards raccoons leave gifts on, but Iím not going to force others to. Common sense isnít so common these days....

good question, I don't know. I would have to say I haven't heard much about roundworm affecting people either, maybe a little research can show how many cases there are? But I would take it seriously, always better safe than sorry!
