Boys, Trees and Wild Animals

We have a Raccoon problem in our neighborhood. There have been a few around for years, but it seems to have multiplied in the past few months. The trash cans get knocked over more often and vegetables get eaten out of the garden.

Last night I received a call from a neighbor to come outside. I did and he had me look up in the tree in front of our house. Behold, it was a momma raccoon and two infants. The neighbor’s dog started barking and the raccoons ran up the tree. Now when a raccoon is up a tree in some parts of the country, it comes down heaver than it went t up. The fact that my trash cans get knocked over all the time, the thought crossed my mind.

Then Eric came out, assessed the situation and went back in to get his gloves and a hoodie. He wanted to climb the tree. We helped him up to the crotch of the tree, which is about 15 feet up. He climbed a little farther, but he figured out that there was no way to get closer. We took his picture and you can see the reflection of the eyes of the raccoons.
