Caught on Camera: Watch Mother Raccoon Relocating Her Babies After Removal

Raccoon mother with kitLast week we were at a home in Brantford Ontario doing a raccoon removal from underneath an aging add-on sun-porch. The raccoon mother and her kits were living underneath it. Since the babies were born at this home, we can safely presume the family has been living there at least through the winter. The home owners were unaware the raccoons had been living in their attic until quite recently when they heard noises coming from above especially at night.

We were able to extract 5 babies plus the mother and while sealing up the sun porch we were happy to see that the mother raccoon was already relocating her babies from our proprietary wildlife baby warming-box.

When the home owner gave us a call, she indicated that she was hearing the sounds of baby raccoons underneath her backyard sub porch. The home owner has two kids that enjoy playing in the backyard so getting the raccoon babies and the mother removed quickly from her living space was of the utmost importance.

For this removal job, we were only on site for a little over an hour and during that time the mother raccoon successfully relocated all 5 of her kits. Another happy ending!
