It was a busy weekend for animal rescuers, hard at work in Tulsa. A female raccoon moved into a home near 61st and Memorial after some squirrels moved out.

The problem is, the people living in the house weren't willing to share their space. So they called on animal relocater Ted Corbin to get rid of their guest.

Ted says he gets lots of calls for squirrels and raccoons this time of year, but those aren't the only animals he has to deal with. "Skunks - the mating season is pretty close to over and that’s when I get a lot of problems with skunks. It’s during mating season that they'll get to fighting underneath the house. The males and females will get to fighting, and that gets awful stinky."

Ted says he'll probably release the raccoon at Heyburn Lake outside of Sapulpa.
