Raccoon

Thought I would share these pictures of a raccoon I took back in 2005. This is at the Toronto Science Museum, and the raccoon was just coming right up to be fed by people with probably is not the best idea. I didn't feed it but I was able to get pretty close.

Raccoons are one of my absolute favorite animals (why else would I get a tattoo of one?). I raised more than I can count when I did rehab. This one is a really healthy looking fella.

OMG that's so cool I love raccoons, I think they have the cutest little faces! I couldn't imagine raising one...that would be a dream come true! Hehe

Once my uncle caught a whole family in his garage (in live traps) they were so cute

Great pics!

Being able to raise a raccoon from a baby would be amazing! A friend of ours who delivers pizzas, says someone has one as a pet, but he cant remember which house it was Grr, how could you forget something like that! I don't know if there legal here tho. Back in Wisconsin, we had one that lived in our alley somewhere, it was huge, and would walk right up the middle of the alley like he was king of the neighborhood

So sad how people feed wild animals like that :S
I do feed the birds at winter, and some ducks in public ponds, but it's still sad to see wild animals with absolutly no fear of humans.

But super cute pics though.
They look so cute ^_^ Like little bandits

Yeah,when me and my ex would drive out to Cape Spear,there would always be this silver fox who would come right up to the car.He was not afraid at all.Unfortunatly I didn't have a camera back then...this was years ago.But it was crazy how this little fox didn't see cars or humans as a threat! Which could be quite bad/dangerous!

Aww. I heard you can feed them if you spend time with them, and let you get used to them.
