    Cut the tree down? They will most likely go else where

        Been through this a 1000 times. Per the DEC you can kill any coon on your property. In fact it is illegal in NYS to catch and relocate them, as they are disease carrying pests.

        DEC actually recommends drowning in a garbage pail as a humane method I recommend .177 or .22 airgun at close range (head shot placement).

        Coons scavage in packs nocturnally and live in tree hollows. We bungee our garbage cans when we put them out and use ghost pepper and peppermint spray (Their sense of smell is much greater than ours and that stuff makes me dizzy). The best you can do is eliminate any food source and clear any clutter, and trap and kill them as a nuisance pest per DEC.

        Be careful dealing with them or allowing your pets to. They carry a ton of diseases from ringworm to rabies, and the notorious Raccoon roundworm which can eat your dogs heart.

          Do you stuff them, and hang them on your wall ?

            No. Only streetwalkers.

            Many coon skulls in my woods. They sometimes fall from trees, fight and fatally wound each other or come across dogs on some of the horse properties.

          I can imagine a row of raccoon heads on pikes lining the woods as a warning to other raccoons

          have a heart trap for me use a marshmallow as bait.
          unfortunately you will have to kill it afterwards or do the illegal thing and relocate at least 12 miles away.
          a exterminator should be willing and able to do it for you if its on her land

              This guy comes recommended by a couple of acquaintances who have had good results. After they're gone I'd cut the dead tree down to avoid future tenants.

              Since we're at the height of baby season I really hope there are no youngsters in that tree. As dangerous as they can be as adults they're adorable when they're just born

                  Put a poster of something really disgusting and scary in the tree to scare them away.
                  Something like this:

                      We sell raccoon traps. We are very experienced in this area. When you catch them in a trap, you can lower the whole trap into a tub of water and the raccoons expire quickly.
                      It is legal to catch and kill on your own property as stated, but you may not move wildlife to another location. A raccoon can have rabies or distemper or various diseases but their poop is more dangerous to humans and you can get various intestinal worms from raccoon poop. Be careful handling their excrement!

                      Raccoons are easy to bait with raw or cooked chicken, and raw fish, and marshmallows as mentioned previously are the secret weapon of professional raccoon trappers, (don't ask me why).
                      Disguise the bait in the trap by putting a handful of trash can waste in the trap with the bait, some plastic wrap, tin foil, etc. Making the bait look like the trash from an ordinary trash can will disguise the bait since raccoons have learned that trash cans contain food.

                      The Hillary picture in inhumane, I will report you to ASPCA for that.
