Got called to a small variety/grocery store the other night. Clerk was at the register. Saw a coon walk by the front door. Door was one of those that opens when someone walks up. Doors opened and the coon ran inside. Can not locate the coon or get it to go into a cage trap. They have seen it on video and it sets off the alarm. Set some different traps today. Management has closed the store until the coon is removed. Just something we run into at times. One of the problems is the store is 50 miles from home. No one closer.

Ugh, it could be hiding anywhere. Can you narrow it down to a room with cameras?

We got a call about a bat in a clothing store once. They didn't close the store, so it probably looked really weird for 2 guys to be seen looking through racks of women's clothes and studying the mannequins.

I used to take my rat terrier with me on calls like that. He found everything from bats to snakes. Or course, there were times that nothing was found.

So Jim, how'd it turn out. I have visions of coon making heck of a mess in store. My only thought on ideas is the coon needs water, maybe put out some Koolaid or something to attract him.

Finally got him last night. Store was closed for 4 days. Employees at the store got all kinds of bad emails from people because the store was closed. Biggest problem was that it was an hours drive each way.

In a cage trap with several different baits. Same one that had been there for 3 days. Had 3 different traps set in different places. Not sure why he picked that trap that day.

My civilian job is at a semi conductor plant. We are a clean room facility that requires full body suits, hoods, gloves and shoes. Its suppose to be many times cleaner than a hospital surgical center. One night we had a raccoon walking around the cleanroom. People freaked out and the raccoon took off. They never found the critter or figured out how it got in and out of the building.
