At Coopertown Services, we pride ourselves on our ability to handle unexpected challenges with professionalism and care. Recently, we were called upon to address a particularly intriguing case involving a raccoon that had made its home in the chimney of a house in Memphis. The project referred to us through an online search, required immediate attention, and was successfully completed within the same day.

The Initial Discovery

When the homeowner first contacted us, they reported hearing unusual noises coming from their chimney. Recognizing the potential for wildlife intrusion, we promptly dispatched one of our certified technicians to assess the situation. Upon arrival, they quickly identified the signs of raccoon activity—a discovery that set the stage for an intricate and humane removal process.

Assessing the Situation

Our technician's initial inspection confirmed that a raccoon had indeed taken up residence within the chimney. This was evidenced by visible marks and the unmistakable sight of a raccoon's face peering up from the flue. The challenge now was not only to remove the animal but also to ensure its safety throughout the process.

Understanding Raccoon Behavior

Raccoons are nocturnal creatures known for their intelligence and adaptability. Their presence in urban environments like Memphis is not uncommon, especially during colder months when chimneys provide warmth and shelter. Understanding this aspect of raccoon behavior allowed us to approach the situation with empathy and expertise.

Humane Removal Process

Our primary goal was to remove the raccoon humanely without causing harm or distress. Utilizing specialized equipment designed for wildlife management, we carefully navigated the chimney space. Those efforts were documented through a series of photographs that captured each step of this delicate operation.

Ensuring Safety for All Parties Involved

Safety is paramount in such operations—not only for our team but also for the animals involved. We employed gentle techniques to coax the raccoon out of its hiding spot, ensuring minimal stress and maximum efficiency. The use of non-invasive tools and a calm demeanor facilitated a smooth extraction process.

Post-removal Inspection and Prevention

Once safely removed, it was crucial to inspect the chimney thoroughly for any signs of damage or potential re-entry points. Our team installed a secure metal wire cage over the chimney top to prevent future intrusions while still allowing proper ventilation.
