If you find a dead raccoon on your property, there may or may not be some meaning behind it. However, it is understandable for homeowners to get a little cautious, or suspicious, upon discovering a dead raccoon near their home. There is some helpful information to know about dead raccoons, the threat they pose, and how to prevent raccoon activity on your property. Continue reading to learn the meaning behind a dead raccoon near your house, and what to do when you find one.

Wild Raccoons

Raccoons are highly intelligent mammals that have become a nuisance wildlife issue for many residential and urban neighborhoods. Due to land over-development, raccoons have been forced out of their natural habitats, and left to thrive on whatever resources they can find near them. The other problem is that raccoons do not naturally live a long time in the wild. In domesticated settings, a raccoon can live up to 20 or 30 years, but in nature, they have a life expectancy of 2 to 3 years. For this reason, it is common to come across a dead raccoon, whether hit by a car or preyed upon by a larger mammal.

Dead Raccoon Removal

If you do find a dead animal carcass on your property, contact a local raccoon removal company for safe and professional assistance. They retain the proper tools, training, and resources to safely and humanely remove raccoons, dead or alive, at a price you can afford. Just be sure to choose a company with experience and the proper licensing.

If you've watched videos of people playing with squirrels on our site or YouTube, you understandably might now be thinking, "Hey, that looks like fun! Where can I buy a squirrel?" This article will explain how you can get all the cuddly squirrels you want for free.

First, before you jump in to getting your own squirrel, it's important to learn some basic facts.

Baby squirrels are remarkably willing to be raised by humans. It's amazing. For the first six months of their life, if you give them good care and love, they will happily accept you as their mama. They are enthusiastic fun loving little creatures, and you can experience many hours of joy with young squirrels.

As the babies come to maturity, the situation changes. Adult squirrels are like adult humans. They want to go off in to the world, live the life a million years of evolution have designed them to live, revel in their freedom, and engage in, um, baby making activities.

If an adult squirrel is denied the life they were designed to live, they become less cuddly, anxious, and maybe even a bit ornery. All the energy they would normally use in a natural life outdoors now gets applied to chewing on your furniture, electric cords, and maybe your fingers. Adult squirrels can not be house trained either.

If you take this approach, you'll find the vast majority of wildlife rehabbers will welcome you with open arms, and help you have the experience you want to have.

You don't have to dive in to raising baby squirrels until you're ready. As example, you might volunteer to baby sit baby squirrels for a few days when the rehabbers go out of town. You might volunteer to assist the rehabbers with their squirrels.

Once you're ready to have your own baby squirrels, you will have to spend some money on supplies. It's not real expensive, but especially the first time, you need to stock up on formula, syringes, nipples, cages and so on.

So, you've learned that baby squirrels make great pets, and adult squirrels do not. You've also learned that, if you do it right, you'll never have to buy a baby squirrel.
