Killing fur bearers

My neighbor traps and kills raccoons, possums, and skunks. We live in Plainfield Illinois, is this legal to do? I'm really upset that he kills possums, as they slow the spread of Lyme disease. These animals have not been destructive to homes, though perhaps some gardens. He doesn't have a license, and he drowns them once they are caught. Is this legal, and if not how to I turn him in, and to whom? The police just tell me to ignore it
