Monster of the Day #1106

OK, I haven’t had this, but I do have a racoon or something living under my trailer, and it’s very annoying.

    Paranoid types…are sometimes justified…

    I have a monkey or something living above my trailer, and it’s very annoying – Mrs. R. Raccoon

    Another great image, looks like a real tarantula (and I’m a guy with about 100 live tarantulas). I think I’ll have to put aside my nitpicking and make my daughter and wife watch this with me this weekend…

    If you see the trailer rockin…..

    Ouch, just saw this. RIP Mr Nimoy…

    I had a skunk under my house. A couple nights ago, it got into a fight with something and won the battle in the manner skunks do… I was blessed and the smell went away within an hour, praise God!

  • bgbear_rnh

    I watched a confrontation between a skunk and a raccoon over some leftover I had thrown out for the raccoon. The raccoon slunk away when it was obvious the skunk was not going to back down. I assume the raccoon was reacting from of experience.

  • Raccoons under the house can be expensive. They can also, 3 fracking years after you bought the house, turn out to be the reason that the AC and heat never seemed to reach upstairs. Furry disease-carrying bastards.

  • Ken_Begg

    Yes, it’s clearly tearing up my floors down there. I even hired a service to come deal with it, but for some reason they only leaves the trap outside, maybe some stupid animal cruelty law about always being able to see if something is down there. So there’s a wad of money down the drain.

    I’ll just have to buy a trap and stick it under there myself, and check every couple of days and hope whatever it is gets trapped. Hopefully it’s not a skunk.

    Damn, Ken – It can be hard to post to your site LOL Anyway, R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy…

  • Ugh, good luck. What a pain! And of course shooting the bugger is out of the question when you live in town.

    I had to hire someone to go after the one under mine, but at least he did catch it.

  • Eric Hinkle

    What the heck are you doing with 100 live tarantulas?

  • Eric Hinkle

    Be careful if you go after it, raccoons are mean little buggers, AND they are a common rabies vector!

  • bgbear_rnh

    I guess we are lucky, the raccoons are really mellow where we live in CA. Its semi-rural and nice weather so, they do not try to live under or over folks homes.

    I heard people say they attack cats but, I have seen them stand next to cats and ignore them. It is the coyotes that get the cats. People don’t see the coyotes as often and don’t realize how many there are.

    I have a bug museum in Santa Fe. I wanted to post a link but apparently you can’t here.

  • Eric Hinkle

    If it has a site, you can just post the name and we can search for it online.

  • Wade Harrell

    I should have thought of that. Our website is Harrell house dot com and click on “visit out store and museum”.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Thanks, I’ll search for it tomorrow. And good luck with your army of tarantulas.

  • Marsden

    Especially the ones that are space bounty hunters. They are the worst.
