We also have a raccoon that lives in the neighborhood. He is not very nice and very dangerous but so cute. As an example he went to my neighbors yard a few nights ago reached in her chicken cage and took one of her chickens out piece by piece. The crazy thing is she was standing there yelling and it did not bother him at all. I love nature and LOVE animals but raccoons have made it on my list of something I like to look at but not have in my backyard.
