Raccoon Nesting In Chimney:
Raccoon nesting in chimney in Oakland County– Sullivans Nuisance Animal Control received a call from a homeowner who saw a raccoon and possibly some babies nesting in their chimney. A technician was sent out to do a inspection of the home and could see the mother and her kits. They were living in the homes chimney. Due to the situation it was important to approach with caution because the mother raccoon will protect her young. The technician set a chimney trap to catch the mother first. Upon the capture of the mother raccoon it was now safe to remove the kits. Since the kits were still quite small it was safe to handle them with special gloves and training. As a result, we were able to relocate both mother and babies to a safe area where they could find a better suited den.
