The little booger is a daredevil!

I have those varmints visiting my deck most every night in the warmer months. Wonder what kinda crazy woman would throw apple peelings off the deck?

16. We have squirrels, bunnies and deer here in the North Country, don't see too many raccoons

And maybe that's a good thing - they are smart little creatures!

18. On our the southern VA coast we have

An assortment of deer, squirrels, wild turkey, raccoons, bunnies, fox -- all of which I've seen on our lawn and in our wooded back lot in one day. Our neighborhood has officially been designated a wildlife and bird sanctuary. There are also all kinds of birds here including an assortment of owls, eagles, hawks, ducks, swans, geese, pheasants, and dozens of smaller colorful beauties. We're on a bird migration path which attracts bird watchers and wildlife photographers who visit with their binoculars and cameras.

We also welcome black snakes which help to *somewhat* keep the horrible water moccasins under control. I hate those moccasin and wish there were a way to totally eradicate them. They're here because at the back of our property is a small ~30 acre lake which flows over a small 20' dam into the York River which flows into the Chesapeake Bay.

Last week I was taking our 2 Labs on a late night walk when my big girl began sniffing in the roadside ditch near our house. I scanned the pile with my flashlight beam to see what she was so interested in. It turned into a terrifying close encounter. Apparently the moccasins must have been just coming out of hibernate and thankfully it was still cool enough to slow the snake's motion because one of those unmistakably fat , scary snakes stuck at Missy just as my light beam's was on it. She jumped away as I screamed so loudly that I must've awakened neighbors. I hate that our wonderful wildlife menagerie comes with those very dangerous moccasins.

12. "Raccoons are off the charts crafty"

Dogs are smarter than cats, but raccoons are off the charts crafty

https://boingboing.net/2018/05/02/dogs-are-smarter-than-cats-bu.html

Apparently they are intensely curious.

Good show Rocky!




Now somewhere in the Black Mountain Hills of Dakota
There lived a young boy named Rocky Raccoon
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
Hit young Rocky in the eye
Rocky didn't like that
He said, "I'm gonna get that boy"
So one day he walked into town
Booked himself a room in the local saloon...
