Raccoons are wild Pembroke Pines creatures that can easily be identified through their mask and the circles around their tails. Though the raccoon may appear to be adorable, they abhor the presence of human. They can have an aggressive and destructive behavior so it is best to stay away from them. It is not rare to encounter a raccoon that is taking shelter under our porch. Due to the possibility that they may carry disease, it is highly important to get rid of them immediately.
