Last night and today the National Geographic Channel showed Animal
Extraction. Featuring two professionals removing a mother raccoon and
her babies from a woman's attic.
Well, basiclly, the mother took off with one baby, and didn't come
back. The pros sealed up where she had been coming and going. Then set
the babies out, but she still didn't return. So they agitated one of t
he babies. She came back and got one. They agitated another. She came
back, pissed. Each return trip she was more pissed. A real hoot seeing
a grown man, a professional mind you, running away from a pissed
raccoon, out in the open air, not nside. Made me very glad it wasn't
A raccoon can be a fearsome thing to mess with. Which is why I
won't. Cute, maybe; but if I see one eying me I'll be very happy to
back off, way off. It's one of thos, "don't do this at home kids, leave
it to the professionals", type of t hing.
If you can catch the program, I'd recommend it. Good
If you're not making a rocket, it ain't rocket science.
