Man those raccoons are hilarious! I remember when my wife and her girlfriend were drinking on our back deck one warm evening and heard a Raccoon opening up the Raccoon-proof trash can. They went down from the deck with their phone flashlights to scare it off but when they came around the corner the huge thing, must of been a granddaddy, just looked up at them with his big old red-satan light-reflecting eyes and carried on nonchalantly munching on his supper. His confidence beat their nerves and they ran off screaming.


I had to clear up the mess in the morning. Not the first time I've done it, but raccoons have been living in the area for at least as million years before humans did, so it would be bad form for me to assert living rights over them.

I want one!

I had raccoons for a couple years in my front yard and I got to watch three litters of babies grow up. I think they're awesome. And they have so much personality. I got to watch them in the years after 2008 and I'm not sure I'd have made it through those years looking for a job if I hadn't had those raccoons to cheer me up.

At first I thought she was climbing smooth concrete but it look like it is made of aggregates. Still, what a heart warming story.

Most articles I have read of this story call the raccoon a boy and some articles call it a girl. Any official confirmation as to which it is? I wonder when the raccoon will rejoin the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Before the raccoon was caught on the roof it was being referred to as 'he' by the media but obviously nobody would have had any way of knowing what gender it was. It's common to refer to an animal as 'he' or 'it' if gender is unknown, rarely will it be called 'she'. After it was caged and examined the wildlife conservation officers who relocated it confirmed that it was a young female.

As they released her into the wild, she was seen to turn and face the city exclaiming loudly "I'll Be Back!"

No! She hit our duck house the other night and ate two of our ducks!
