The raccoon can be recognized by its notorious black mask and tail with black rings. Adult raccoons can be up to 3 feet long and weigh between 10 to 60 pounds. Raccoons have a whitish gray coat. This fur is long and dense, a grizzled brown and black color that has often been described as "salt and pepper." The tail can grow to be fifteen inches. A tail can have five to seven black rings on it.

 

Although, raccoons are carnivores and have long canine teeth, their molar teeth are adapted for a varied diet which includes more than just meat. They have sharp claws so they can climb trees eat birds and open shell fish like clams and oysters. Raccoons are mostly nocturnal animals. Yet they are seen in the daytime.

This is the only marsupial in North America. With a body length of 12 to 24 inches and its tail 9 to 20 inches. Obviously not the largest marsupial weighing in at less than 15 pounds. And with a life span of only 2 to 3 years no wonder he is a nocturnal creature. They are scavengers of the night looking for food and a place to spend the night. Their diet; well they have no diet, they can eat anything and do so. But caution any food left out specially cat, and dog food will attract them to your home. About the only benefit to you as a home owner is that they sometimes control your rodent problems. A sticky critter in the wild although gentle when left undisturbed, contrary to its vicious looks

Skunks can be found near forests, bushes, Holes, and under buildings. They release a strong stench from a gland as a defense against any attackers. usually identified by their 2 white stripes on the back. They are about the same size as a house cat.

Pigeons

 

 

 

Pigeons may be live-trapped on buildings and other likely locations. Live-traps for pigeons are available. Pre-baiting the traps with grains that the birds are accustomed to will increase success. A variety of baits, including cracked corn, millet, popcorn, sunflower seeds, peas, bread, and peanuts can be used. Water is available in the trap at all times. Trapping in any given area is usually will reduce the number of pigeons quickly and humanely, it is labor intensive, and most of the time a great reduction measure.
