Shreveport in Northwest Louisiana, Caddo Parish is where this very real scene unfolded. A whole city block where every house is a duplex with only 10′ between each unit makes for very close quarters, add several families of raccoons and one very loving little lady, and conflict begins.
A All Animal Control of Northwest Louisiana today was called in to resolve this human vs. raccoon conflict, serving Caddo Parish and Bossier Parish, specializing in raccoon removal.
The caller complained of raccoons in the yard, under the house and porch, on the duct work, and in the trash cans. When A All Animal Control of Northwest Louisiana arrived, it was decided to interview all of the neighbors, as well as the occupants. The first question was, “Who is feeding the raccoons?” All fingers pointed to the house three doors down. A raccoon laying under the edge of the house confirmed this. Raccoon removal in this Shreveport community was going to be a challenge!
As soon as A All Animal Control of Northwest Louisiana approached the “Raccoon House” the home owner, “Raccoon Lady,” came out and was ready for confrontation. For several minutes the trained wildlife technician listened, communicated, and explained why wild raccoons should not be fed. He included raccoon round worms, rabies, tape worms, raccoon attacks, and raccoon damage. All of this information fell on deaf ears, as “Raccoon Lady” had named each and every raccoon in the area. She did not seem to care that in Caddo Parish and in Shreveport, raccoons are the major vector for rabies. She didn’t care that Shreveport, Louisiana had an ordnance against feeding wild raccoons.
Sensing this raccoon removal was going to be a major endeavor the trained wildlife technician decided to work under the cover of darkness himself. If the wild raccoons could prowl at night, then so could he; although, working on raccoon removal at night in Shreveport, Louisiana could prove dangerous.
The wildlife technician adjusted his work schedule. He set raccoon traps after dark and then went back to check them before daylight. The human vs. human conflict was avoided, the human vs. raccoon conflict was resolved.
