Young Raccoon With Injured Foot

As I’m watching my multitude of wildlife cameras positioned throughout various places in the backyard, I notice a raccoon raiding my bird feeder.  It’s actually a nightly occurrence, so I’m rather used to the invasion.

(Update #3  The two young Skunks just arrived).  This has all occurred in less than 1 hour.  I clearly have a problem. —————- […]

Mother And Baby Raccoon Video

Got something a little different tonight to share.  I was watching my Birdcam tonight and as expected a Raccoon showed up.  However, this isn’t the normal Raccoon that I see, this one appears smaller. If you look at this first video, look how the Raccoon uses its hands to eat and find seed.  Also compare […]
