Did you taste it?
Yes Rockey Raccoon been feasting at garbage can dinner again.
Are the saw-fit vents opened. I would like to see a photo of the exterior to see the opened areas.
Those are 4 inch nails hanging down?
t should be a simple write up.
Note the defects and recommend a roofer if you fell it needs attention.
Sorry Mr.Macy that is all I can say.
That red semi digested moist material looks like raccoon vomit. Did you see any droppings.
Note your observations and recommend a licensed pest control company trap that Raccoon.
Fix all entery-points that inter into the attic.
If you see any nesting materials, extensive droppings and evidence that the animal has been in the attic for weeks or even months.
They usual enter attics to torpor a form of hibernation. Like bears or to have offspring. Raccoons can be very destructive and mean, and noisy…
Know to eat electric wiring and chew at wood structures, 2/4 and cause extensive damage.
They also carry rabies…
One way of removing pest from an attic is to place a high watt strobe light and leave it run 24/7.
The pests are normally gone withing 24 to 48 hours.
They like to sleep to.
The constant strobbing disturbs there torpor ( sleeping.)
Remember if it winter thy are there to stay for a while.
Best I could do without more pics.
Good luck mate.
