Do more raccoons live in urban areas, or wild areas? So you've seen a lot of raccoons hanging around your house recently. That is not a surprise. You probably have something they want, like an ample food supply from your garbage can or garden, or a great place to make a home in your attic or shed. If there is a great reason to stay they will do so. You may see them so frequently that you wonder if there are more living in urban areas today than in wild habitats. That is a good question that is not so cut and dry to answer.
You must understand that man's encroachment upon the raccoon's territory has made it so that we and they are much closer to each other than ever before. Man has cut down many wooded areas, giving the raccoon less places to be able to live and search for food. This means that have to turn to places where humans are living simply out of a need to find space for food.
So next we need to define what is considered "wild." Is wild a park that people go to visit? Is it a huge area of untouched land? We need a definition to be able to properly speak about this, because a person may own 10 acres of land, but none of it is used for housing, yet it is still considered part of an urban area. So is it wild or urban?
For the sake of argument we will say that wild is any half acre sized piece of land or bigger that does not have a residential or business structure on it. So if there is no home or business there then it is considered wild. This may not be the perfect definition, but it is a good place to start.
If one examines the question, the truth is that more raccoons live in "wild" areas than in urban ones. They want the seclusion that comes from open spaces where people are few, so parks, wildlife preserves, and forests are still their favorite place to live. However, more seek food in urban or areas where lots of people live because many of their traditional areas for food are gone. This means that your waste or garden can be a great place for a raccoon to find food, especially if you have an open garbage can or dumpster. Hopefully this has shined some light on the subject and given an answer that makes sense.
