Don’t Assume Wild Pigs Are Guilty of Tearing Up Your Lawn

 

Recently we visited an estate property outside of Healdsburg and were amazed to see large portions of the front lawn torn up.  We assumed wild pigs were the cause.  Couldn’t understand why the landscaper had put out small live traps.  The next day we found they had caught four raccoons.  As they explained, the raccoons were probably looking for grubs under the grass.  Skunks apparently can do the same thing but they don’t visit with a group as do the raccoons.  Lots to learn with country property, but a lot of neighbors to advise you.
