We had this boom of custom house built here , the big thing was lots of roof lines and put as many reverse gables on the house as you can , well this
left all these spots were they left room to tuck singles under the over hangs were these roof lines meet . That's we're the holes are just like a big bat funnel or bird house,it also makes a good spot to start a hole , then this plastic ridge vent which is not even made for a roof over 6 pitch , if it's not warped the sun has got brittle or no end caps . Then these can vents with the floating screen, then the screen on the gable vent o boy the list goes on its beautiful

Yes, I wish the State of Michigan would require mandatory euthanization of all nuisance and depredating wildlife. It is just my opinion based on things I have seen over the years. But since my health has prevented me from working I could really care less. I was just voicing my opinion.

At one time I was translocating 200 - 400 coon a year. As a good businessman I had several farms that would let me translocate wildife to their property. Many of these had coon hunters and trappers working them during the open season. I stopped translocating raccoon after getting phone calls from neighbors to these farmers complaining about raccoon problems. At one spot the father of a buddy of mine asked me if there was an over abundance of coon that year. I asked him why he wanted to know. He said that he had shot 30+ coon in the late afternoon that year traveling down his river bank from the direction of one of my release farms. Another reason why I stopped translocating raccoon was because I have seen the effects of distemper on a local population and I can't tell a sick coon from a healthy one if it is in the early stages and I don't want to be responsible for translocating a disease. Besides, the raccoon population is in no danger of becoming endangered.

Additionally, if I were still able to do this type of work, it would make life alot easier if all I had to do was tell my customers that the State requires euthanization of all nuisance and depredating wildlife. Then if they didn't want the animal euthanized I guess they didn't really have a problem to begin with.

Alright Paul, you can downgrade me to what number now?

Explaining to your garbageman why you needed two more garbagecans and why they each weighed 300 pounds would be the hard part.

LOL. Or use a Frigidaire "holding pen" and meter it out throughout the year.

We could all become masters at making it look like an accident or animal suicide. " Dang crazy raccoon just jumped off the overpass onto the freeway in rush hour traffic, then 6 more followed him"
