Procyon lotor


Rather small raccoon. Black, tan, Cream


Woodland areas. Suburbs


Caught Trying to sneak into our campsite. We were sitting around the campfire when we heard it. Didn't seem to be afraid. Came within 10 feet of us, looking for food. It got In to our cooler the night before and stole the cheese and potatoes. We'll maybe not that one, but one of them did. They freaked us out. We heard something moving in the woods behind the tent and thought it was just a deer, until they started to fight. After that the cooler was moved inside.
