distemper, rabies, parvo. Likely have to look sick.


Add roundworm to that list.  https://ugaresearch.uga.edu/deadly-raccoon-roundworm-can-infect-humans-without-symptoms/

As a tenant, you shouldn't have a problem with trapping them legally.  Your likely issue would be the neighbors.
Leptospirosis, humans can catch it also.

Bow and arrow man. Just make sure no one is around to see it happen and make sure to hit vitals. I lived down in Sumner next to the Puyallup river in an apartment complex.. someone let loose their pet rabbits and they bred with the native rabbits... The offspring got HUGE! I have dogs and we used to walk them in the evenings out by the river without an issue until they found the rabbits. So 2 birds 1 stone... I got some big rabbits in my freezer and it kept them away so I didn't have to worry about my dogs chasing them anymore. 1 arrow with a blunt tip and thump them in the head or chest.. its a done deal man. Same for raccoons I would assume.

I trapped one at my old house.  Got a tarp, put it over the cage and made sure all sides were weighted down.  Then got one of the co2 gas bomb things that you use to put down in mole holes to kill them.  Lit the fuse and set it under the tarp.  Coon went nighty night.  Nice and quiet.

Domestic rabbits wonít breed with wild rabbits. Itís not biologically possible.

Only two natives in all of Washington.  Everything you see in Western Washington is introduced

Correct. I should have said cottontail rather than wild rabbit. My daughter is going to smack me. A domestic/European rabbit will not/can not breed with a cottontail and produce live offspring. Native or non-native, there are cottontails in western Washington. Pretty much all feral/domestic rabbits are either European rabbits or hares.

OK, now I am confused.   I thought every single fuzzy animal with two big ears in Western Washington was an introduced species.

When I have problems with raccoons I take care of them with my bow & I donít care about in season or not. I canít have wild diseased raccoons getting after my dog or the neighbors day care so I kill them all. I live ina house though, itís a bit easier than n an apartment
