As you can see, the raccoon ripped apart the soffit area in order to enter the attic.
How did the raccoon manage that? It just climbed up the downspout!
If you look closely, you can see the raccoon pawprints on the side of the home.
I installed a right-angle nose cone that will lead into a two-gaited, heavy-duty device that is temporarily mounted to the side. This is called a positive set because we are positive that the raccoon will enter the device. We also placed several baited traps nearby. Once we safely retrieve the raccoon, we will disinfect the attic, install metal flashing over the main access point, and relocate the raccoon to a new humane environment.
