Raccoons Getting Active

Published by at 7:30 am under Mammals,Schenley Park

After a quiet winter this week’s warm weather has brought out the raccoons.

On Monday I heard a strange noise above my head in Schenley Park.  Two raccoons were arguing high in a tree.

Then late at night I heard the scratchy sound of raccoons disagreeing in my back yard.  Safe indoors, my cat looked in the direction of the sound but was unimpressed.

Fortunately we don’t have a cat door or we might have had a visitor like the one in this video… !

    Raccoons try to be so nonchalant. I can almost hear it humming ;)

    I volunteer at a wildlife rehab center. The first time I had to clean out a pen full of juvenile raccoons, I was going about my business, and was suddenly startled when I felt something behind me. One of the rascals was emptying my pockets!
