The Bandit (Not Smokey)


Here's another critter I couaght while I was out and about today. This mama racoon was out prowling for garbage and handouts at South Lido Beach here in Sarasota. I followed her around for quite a while, which she didn't seem to mind. I suppose the racoons in that area are used to people. Someone stopped and warned me about rabies when they saw me following her around. That may be a problem, but I was keeping enough distance from her that I really wasn't worried about it.

I read an article recently speaking of raccoons in Europe. Apparently there they are an invasive species and are wreaking havoc. They are theiving entire crops. Cute little buggers, though...
