“Raccoon problems have become more prominent in big cities like Toronto, where some areas are literally swarming with them. And the raccoons are becoming less afraid of human contact and become more aggressive. Which can be quite troublesome, as they can potentially hurt people and become a carrier of other diseases. Not to mention become a serious threat to sanitation, as this critters have a knack of rummaging through trash for food.
Experts believe that the problem stems from people feeding them in the past years, therefore making them more familiar and less scared of human contact. Once they stop getting hand-outs, they become more desperate and resort to scavenging and other destructive behavior.
So for areas with only a few raccoon population, it is best to avoid feeding this critters and making them dependent to human contact. If a group decides to take residence on your home, best call for raccoon removal services from wildlife control experts like Skedaddle Wildlife.”
