blah!! Raccoons are on my hit list at the moment. They ate my chickens, and they are running rampant all over the country eating sweet corn. Good luck New York. Baby raccoons and even big raccoons are very cute...but one raccoon might be company and three is definitely a crowd! Ever notice..they come in threes--a momma and two babies.

We have a few raccoons that have been out in the daytime. Since they are nocturnal, it is assumed they may be sick.
