Well, I trapped another one yesterday morning.  Didn't bother to check gender, but it must have been a momma.  Around mid afternoon, my wife called me to show me 3 young raccoons walking across our pool cover and they appeared to be looking for their missing momma.

that's tough to see. i never like to youngsters lost. nothing you can do about it. if they are wondering, they can probably take care of themselves

It's sad Louie, but i had the same thing. Caught momma in the morning and had 3 younguns looking for her that afternoon.

Shot all three and lowered our population again. That makes 11 coons, 3 Possums, 2 rabbits and 5 chipmunks that won't mess up our garden!!

I think those three young ones will be able to forage on their own, but not having momma around I suspect they'll come up short on learning about the dangers of cars/dogs/humans/etc - if they find some easy pickins (cat food, etc) they will be hanging out by the humans til someone does something about it.  Congrats on catching the adult though!  Have been thinning the herd here, but more keep showing up.

I use baby carrotts and catch large woodchucks. Then, they meet their maker  ##$%#117
