    I have Racoons!

    I went to bed last night about 11.30 and my motion sensored lights came on so I looked out my bedroom slider and there were three raccoon right on my patio! We have a big plum tree and they were eating the fruit. My husband had seen them the last two mornings eating the plums but I hadn't seen them yet. I've never seen racoons in my yard before but our yard has a lot of fruit trees. I was so excited I tried to get a picture of them but it was too dark. I think they have been coming around for a while. They were actually really cute! I'm going to try and get a picture of them.

    My brother has a pellet gun you can borrow.

    They really run when the pellet hits their hide!

    I found a baby racoon (just a few days old) in my parents back yard when I still lived at home. I had to feed it from an eye dropper. We kept him in a cage at night for his safety. After a few weeks we turned him over to the proper authorities. It was soo cute!!

    Some women wear so much eye makeup that they look just like a racoon.

    Also, those raccoons bite & can carry rabies. So stay away from them.

    When I was camping with my family, one night I got up to go to the bathroom. Anyway a wild raccoon was sitting by the restrooms and I didn't see him until he was right in front of me! He scared me so I hollored "Get the hell out of here! The poor thing probably was more scared of me than I was of him anyway he did a sommersault and ran off. I just about had a heart attack though lol!

    We see them a lot in my area at night. During the summer they sent up camp in the gutter pipes. When the rains come that stuff is flushed into Monterey Bay & we must avoid surfing in it.
