We've noticed that there is a family of raccoons living in our next door neighbor's attic. They have been seen during daytime although most frequently are out at dusk and night.
There is a major language gap between us and our neighbors, and attempts to discuss it don't really register. Given the state of their house it's quite possible they don't have the means to fix the gaping hole in their eaves from which these raccoons emerge. They keep to themselves and we really only see them when they shovel snow late at night.
I don't typically involve myself in other people's business, but we have a dog and two kids who I honestly don't feel that safe about leaving outside at dusk.
Is this an animal control issue? Is it up to the home owner to remedy the situation? Someone who knows more about the city ordinances and departments who handle this stuff have an idea here?
