Garbage can zoo: Raccoon


One evening last winter I stepped out on the porch to put something in the garbage can and there was this guy, a Procyon lotor, rummaging thru the leftovers. I quickly went back in to grab my camera and when I returned it had taken refuge under the car with its booty, a chicken carcass.

We live near a wooded park where I frequently come across raccoon tracks along the creeks. Here is a set of them left in the mud.



The previous garbage can zoo post was about the Virginia opossum.

Recently, Henry at Webiocosm had a post about a raccoon in his backyard.
