For a two or three weeks, well, maybe four, we’ve had a raccoon show up in the most un-raccoon like hours, for instance, 5:00 p.m. or 8 p.m. which are not “nocturnal” hours. She goes to the squirrel feeder and settles in for a meal. We can go out on the front porch and talk with her, she’s tolerant of that, but the first step down, and zoooooommm. She’s gone. She eats heartily and when she lifts her forelegs up, it’s obvious she is feeding baby raccoons off in the wood somewhere. (Think of a Miley Cyrus pose) I hadn’t taken any daytime shots of her but this afternoon I took my camera out and talked her into posing for just a bit. She only has one eye. This probably makes it much more difficult for her to find food. Or at least, that’s what we want to believe. Better theory than rabies. And, in fact, I think that’s the way it is.
