I own a private home in a section of Brooklyn that is very close to a number of large parks, so there are eastern greys abound. One currently found its way into the basement of my home through the chimney. We've sealed everything up, both from roof level as well as within the basement itself. However, we discovered a straggler. He's basically camped out within the food closets along the basement wall (each closet has a hole in the back of it for outlets which allows him to travel from closet to closet). He must have been down there for about two days so far, and he hasnt gone in the steel trap that I set the night before. There has been no access to water for him, just food. The door to the yard is only a few feet from where he is camped out in the basement, and there are stairs that would allow him to escape to the door. Should I just leave it open and hope he leaves? I'm reluctant to open the door and start banging around the basement since he's been essentially trapped down there for two days and the last thing I want is him pouncing on me.
