Sycamore Springs: On trapping and releasing rascally raccoons
Catching and releasing may just be relocating your own problem onto someone else - author has had issue with this problem at Sycamore Springs.

By Cynthia A Meyer
One main drawback to live trap and release is - you are usually just relocating your problem on to someone else!
My farm sits a half mile off the road, and more than once I have stopped some kind hearted soul who live trapped their ring tailed problem, and was about to release it to what they thought was an underpopulated area.
Little did they realize I had five marauding bandits I was already dealing with, and I really did not want to add a new bloodline to strengthen the gene pool !
Maybe one of the better solutions is to ask the Fish and Game Commission what to do with these rascals once they are contained in a live trap. Is it permissible to release them on State or Federal Park property ?
