Raccoons are cute, but they also can be destructive and dangerous.
Raccoons are omnivores, so their diet includes almost everything: fruits, nuts, insects, pet food, trash and also small mammals or birds.
Raccoons carry a wide variety of diseases including Rabies, Canine Distemper, Raccoon Roundworm, Giardia lamblia and Leptospirosis (carried in urine). The contraction of diseases from raccoons, either by people or pets, is very rare, but it does happen.
For your safety, please consider the following suggestions:
- Never feed, approach or attempt to handle a raccoon, especially if it looks unhealthy.
- Never leave pet food outside and bring in bird feeders at night.
- Close dog doors and keep pets inside from dusk until dawn.
- Keep trash cans covered and if possible, in the garage.
The Wright Farms Metropolitan District has hired a Wildlife Management Company to help us with our Raccoon problem. The trapping will take place at night and be removed early in the morning. Should you see a trap or other equipment, please stay clear. The trapping will take until the end of the month. Thank you for your cooperation.
The District is in the process of replacing all the District owned fencing. Homeowners affected will receive information as to when the work will begin.
