Luxury Gun and Garden

Who is this garden, garbage, eating grub, gun slinging bandits; none other than raccoon. Paul McCartney and John Lennon while in India wrote the song “Rocky Raccoon”. There are many ideas about that meaning. The Beatles did show that the song had to be understood literally. A love triangle vanishes. As in the old west with parties and brothels, a gun battle takes place by leaving a significant or perhaps severe injury; Rocky was at the wrong end of the gun. After seeing the doctor he headed to his room to recover or die. What parallels can be found in small places like songs. In our story, there is an inevitable struggle when trying to remove or control raccoons from destroying homes, gardens, and other places that are very disturbing to these pesky animals.

Gun and Garden
Known for their bandit masks and easily recognizable tail strips, raccoons have developed loyal followers. Many, naively, feed wild raccoons on their verandas or make efforts to tame these wild animals. Justifying every wild animal rarely has a favorable outcome. It’s important to be careful rather than mixing it with a territorial raccoon. They are demons. Despite their looks and ingenuity it looks amazing – raccoons destroy properties, roofs, chimneys, roofs, yard poultry and gardens. They are a disease vector, carrying rabies and a fatal round worm species.
Pets and other animals affected by distemper can be affected. Are they so funny? Raccoons live in urban areas, under houses, in chimneys, open roofs and gullies to name a few. Their food is plenty. Raccoon forage from garbage can to trash can. They destroyed city gardens and fruit trees. One of their favorites seems to be dog and cat food. In this area ruled out raccoon nests like the roof and under the house, is the key to be controlled. Trash can be removed as well as animal feed. Fencing with electric wires around gardens, trees and other problem areas can be effective against climbing and excavation.
