    A little while ago a GIANT raccoon was sitting right there on my deck! [​IMG] My mom was just about to take the dogs out and he was just chillin'! This guy was giant and SCARY! Luckily he was at my mom's house and my ducks live at my dad's house, (I'm a minor). I didn't have my camera with me but hopefully he'll come back and I can get some pics. Just wanted to tell you all how unafraid they can be so anybody who lives in Theills, watvh out.

    They don't seem to be disturbed when you turn on a light, either. The big ones ARE scarey!

    I only have a BB gun at my dads house but I was at my moms house (I'm a kid). I definately would have shot him though I HATE rccoons with a passion and have since I was three.

    Big, fat coons are cute! I just want to grab them and squeeze. I've raised raccoons and they are SO squishy.
