  1. I used to be an armed guard at a military base on one of the back side gates. We had named all the trash pandas and sometimes they would sit an pretend to be checking I.D.s with us.

  2. @Koizoh,

    No, we don’t. (well… most of us sane people anyway) These little buggers are smart and a lot more destructive than you can imagine.

  3. I had two kits that were rescued by my brother on the side of the road next to their mom. We raised them till they were about 1 and a bit. Punch and Judy. They were the best, but got into many places the should not have.

  4. Some keep them as pets. I had one growing up. The only kit to survive after mama was hit by a car. They are very rambunctious creatures and can be very loving but ppl have to remember they are wild animals. We released him back to thw woods behind our house where he lived until ye eventually passed away. His name was Gus

  5. In spite of being cute, they can be very mean if they feel threatened. Be very careful around them. I have heard they taste good.

  6. They are cute but they are carnivores and the last picture with the back half of the raccoon sticking out of the hole in the tree means it’s most likely enjoying a meal of baby birds or squirrels and it’s going to come out covered in blood so that’s a little less cute once you understand what is actually happening.

  7. I raised an abandoned raccoon when I was a veterinary nurse. He was amazing. Had to let him go when the hormones kicked in, and he never strayed far from the house after that. I had him vaccinated, but still didn’t really go near him after he was in the wild again so that he wouldn’t be too confident around people. Great little animals, though admittedly, a rabies concern where I was living at the time.

    Weird, I’ve always had Coonhounds, and the ones I had then helped me raise him. I didn’t want to have them become buddies because the plan was always to release the raccoon, but the dogs didn’t allow for that. Fortunately, when I moved from that house, the raccoon was coming around less and less, so I’m assuming he adapted well.

    Anyhow, these pictures are great.

  8. I used to work at a state park in the midwest. The local population of trash pandas became so totally dependent on campers for food that they forgot how to forage in nature. Things reached a head when the trash pandas started threatening campers who were not willing to part with their artistically grilled hot dogs. Each and every single one had to be put down (shot). Us lifeguards were quite happy to not have to clean up any more bloody trash panda diarrhea every morning before letting the swimmers run around the deck.

  9. Even if they don’t have rabies, a lot of them have raccoon round worm. It’s easily spread, an devastating to the central nervous systems of people, pets and livestock.

  10. Anonymous: Rabies has a vaccine, and round worm is treatable. Just like dogs and cats, we can deal with the nasties that come along with their issues. (racoons can make great pets but often leave home to find a mate when sexually mature. Then bring their family back for visits. Rehab centers have often had mothers return to adopt orphans if their babies die. Intelligent and delightful creatures.)
