Great. Just great.
I thought I had just one psycho raccoon that comes to my patio after midnight, manages to tear open my metal can with a locking lid (!) where I keep the bird seed, and settles inside for a long night's feast.
I had no idea there was a family involved! These two babies showed up tonight. I watched them get themselves stuck on the top of my fence and then stumble-bum their way down. By the time I got my camera they were settled in under the bird feeder and enjoying their meal.
Apparently mama and daddy didn't teach them to run away when humans show up. I was about two feet away snapping pictures and they just calmly looked at me and kept right on eating.
I just Googled and learned that raccoons are highly intelligent and adaptable, and can be very destructive (as if I didn't already know that). I think I'm going to have to take steps to clean up my patio area of anything that attracts them. So hey you two ... just know that you got a reprieve ... for now.
