Our first encounter with a raccoon

So tonight we were walking along the creek that runs through our neighborhood when out of the shadows ran this cute little raccoon.  He was running and hopping away from us so we just walked slowly and quietly observed it as long as we could before it disappeared into a drainage pipe.  We didn't even know any lived around here.  Mommy said they can cause lots of trouble at night when the are looking for food.  Have any of you had any bad or good experiences with any racoons?

  1. We are very glad that you all didn't get hurt!! They are cute, but can be destructive or attack if they feel threatened. Thankfully, we haven't run into any lately, but if we do...we would do the same thing you did...video it and blog about it!! Thank you for sharing your little adventure with us! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  3. hey Teddy,

    Very cool! I love raccoon eyes, they are so mysterious. I have never had any problems with raccoons, either out in the country or in the city. I have seem them in both places but they always stayed away from me and have never caused my human any problems. Hope your new neighbor doesn't cause any problems.

  9. We do not have those masked bandits near where we live...just crazy road runners, which we avoid!
