Raccoon Information



Raccoons are “well-rounded,” often plump, with reddish brown to gray fur. Adults weigh an average of 15 pounds, and are readily identified by alternating rings on the tail and characteristic black “mask.”


Raccoons can become a nuisance if people unknowingly supply food or shelter for them. They can be attracted by food available in gardens, fish ponds, pet feeders or garbage, or by cavities that might offer shelter.


Raccoons feed mainly at night. They eat fruit, nuts, berries, small animals and insects, and also will feed on pet food, garbage, and garden crops.


Female raccoons look for den sites in late winter. Litters of one to seven young are born in April and May.
