Looked awfully guilty with the garbage from the bin strewn about.
All shots uncropped.

I kept these to show their deadly claws. Even bears will avoid a fight with a raccoon.

I also love how they sit back on their haunches to eat. Once saw one at the cottage sitting on a deck chair, just like you and I would, eating its food.

Wow! You got great pictures of this raccoon! It looks so soft! I know raccoons are considered to be pests but they are not in our area, so they are rather neat to me!

They really are terribly destructive critters especially if they get into your attic. They are so numerous that I see a few every week, but rarely in daylight.

Happy Lad !!

They wash their food too...I have watched them in the moonlight here. They also have a huge curiosity... when we first moved here I watched one pick something up in the semi darkness and take it to the birdbath and wash it and handle it. I thought it was a stick. Next morning ... in the birdbath... is an old plastic picnic knife it had found somewhere lost by the previous owners !!

Hey... bring your own cutlery and wash up.. they cant be that bad a guest !!

They also have almost adipose thumbs... They are catching up with us.... !!!!

Love how they hold their food! Very smart critters as well. Our so called raccoon proof food garbage bins only stymied them for a few months. Now on garbage days you see a number of bins opened up and contents scattered about.
