In this State, you're not allowed to trap and transport racs. Anyway,
one time in the past using a Haveaheart, the damn dumb cat got
trapped. Another time, the rac was able to somehow escape! Two
other times I was successful in trapping them and shot them with a
.22, but it was a bitch removing the corpses from the traps.
So I marinated a 12 oz. can of cat food in a bowl of antifreeze. Set
it out near where the rac has been doing his damage. Next morning,
the ground at the site was wet with antifreeze, suggesting that he
dumped it, and quite a bit of the cat food remained in the bowl which
was tossed about 20 yds. away.
Do you know whether ACDelco Dex-Cool antifreeze contains denatonium
which is an embittering agent? The ingredients list doesn't mention
it though, so maybe this is simply a rac who doesn't have a sweet
tooth for antifreeze. I can only hope that the meat portion that he
did eat contained enough antifreeze to prevent his destructive return.

You're a Jack Ass. Problem is you're too f'n stupid to use conventional
means and have resorted to inhumane means. Make yourself a sandwich and
pour some on it. Then you'll know how it's working.
Hey Jack, here's a better idea. Why don't you eat the anti-freeze
infested cat food, or better yet, just drink the rest of the gallon of
anti-freeze. If you manage to survive the hospital run, shoot yourself
in the head with the 22. The world will be a better place afterwards.
There are two "above reply"s. If you meant the first or both:
Afraid not. Too radical in some aspects.
Just believe unnecessary cruelty is wrong and head lice do not have
rights. Somewhere in between is where I stand. Never defined where that
is and don't need to. Yes I eat meat and way to go Obama on taking out
the shitwalker right on the air.

People who have not seen what misery Racoons can cause have not the faintest
idea. These same people would send missiles to kill a terrorist 5000 miles away
but kiss a terrorist racoons butt with love and tenederness.
Picture your $ 40,000 dollar boat stored on your property and all covered up for
the winter. Spring time, you remove the layers and what you find?
A completely destroyed interior...cushions, seats, wiring, cupboards...ripped
apart like you have never seen... finished and not worth saving.
I cannot think of a worse and more useless animal in existence than a bloody
racoon.... destroying all traces of it would be of no objection to me at all. A
whole family spending all winter in my boat with faeces all over...my God...you
just have no idea what it feels like.

The raccoon is just a pile of bones by now.

Raccoon, you are charged with eating Erics cherrys. Raccoon, a witness testified
you were sighted in Erics tree.
The sentence is death. To be carried out the very next night (tomorrow, Tuesday
June 2nd, 2013) with anti-freeze. If you survive, the courts order a special
mixture of fly bait & Coke (out of the bottle, your last should be an import)
You body will be disposed of in the city garbage collection can to be placed
curb side Thursday June 4th, 2013.
The Jack Ass is the person posting that message; probably someone who lives in
an apartment and doesn't have to deal with these monsters.
Raccoons are huge rats and they should sell raccoon poison just like they sell
mouse and rat poison. They do nothing beneficial and only make messes going
through garbage cans and vegetable gardens.. I put a huge rock on my can this
evening and the one who has been prowling around and eating anything it can
still managed to turn the can over and pull all the garbage out. There was no
food in the garbage but it still went through the bags and left a huge mess for
me to clean. A few years ago a family managed to climb through the eaves into
the attic and made it their home. It cost me $900 to have them removed and the
area closed off. Since the City is doing nothing about culling these pests then
we have to do it ourselves. Antifreeze works and have gotten rid of a few but
still more still come around. I soak old bread with antifreeze in a plastic bag
and then leave it out for them. There's also some poisonous plants such as
rhubarb leaves which are suppose to work but never tried it.
They use to make raccoon coats and hats; why don't they do that again and get
them off our properties?
If anyone can tell me what raccoons do which is positive and worthwhile, I would
love to know!
Do you have dog? To prevent animals eat anti-freeze, it's taste is very
bitter, not sweet any more. Any animals have a spot in eco-system. When
eco-system is ultimately ruined, guess who is next and last? You and me.
We live near wilderness park, often there comes all kinda animal in our
yard. We have dog(s) always.

You DID GOOD JACK!!! Red Green I hope you get Raccoons like I did that
destroyed $400.00 in bird feeders, tore up my back door screen, broke 4
hummingbird feeders in the $25-30 range EACH. I first live trapped them and
relocated. The Wild Life people said they will die anyway because they do nor
eat out of their own territory, I trapped and shot 3 in the head with a .22 and
enjoyed every minuet of it. I hope I can get them to eat some antifreeze! The
wild life people won't come get them. The Sheriff office said do what you have
to do. So Red Green, I will send them to you to love and kiss and feed and you
can loose over $1,000.00 in your yard and let them run YOU out of your own

Next time perhaps, pause and take into consideration what is going on

Certainly you noticed Raccoons were living around your property before
you put in all the feeders? What did you expect to happen?
You're not allowed to do it here either but you can trap and kill.
Drowning may be better than .22 and from what you say, you may need a
bigger Hav-a-hart as I've seen it happen that trap would not completely
close on raccoon and he could get out.
You're also taking risks with poison which is generally not allowed and
you could kill an animal like someones pet. Ethylene glycol is really
not that toxic and it takes quite a bit to kill an animal. A sip or two
will not do it.
Very small amounts of antifreeze can be fatal. If a cat walks through
a puddle of antifreeze and then licks its paws, it can ingest enough
antifreeze to cause death. About five tablespoons can kill a medium
