Yikes! Call animal control! And try to get a latch and a lock for your deck box so that it can’t be easily opened!

I would give him the night. I bet he will be gone tomorrow. But tomorrow, when you check, use a big stick to open the box so you aren’t right there, racoons can be really mean!

You could bait him out too. Put some cat food outside the box and maybe that will lure him out!

Aww!  I bet he’s cute!  But I totally understand not wanting him living in your deck box.

Hopefully Operation Racoon Harassment is successful!

As long as you do not think it is rabid, I would just leave it alone til night time when it goes to feed, because like you said they are nocturnal animals, maybe it already got kicked out of its sleeping area once today.  I would def scare it away at night time though (if it doesn;t leave on it’s own) and make sure it can’t get back in there.  If it is a female it is that time of year where she will be thinking babies! lol and you certainly don’t want babies in your deck box!
