I came home to find this fellow (or gal) in front of my door. It had tipped over the garbage can and was selecting from the menu it found there. I'm not sure what exactly it was munching on, but it was not pleased that I had disturbed its banquet. These are usually more nocturnal animals, but this one was having the early bird special at around 6:00 p.m.
Raccoons like our neighbourhood. At one point I had a family living on my roof, under a deck - a mother and seven babies. The deck is gone, so it is no longer a good nesting place. But I have seen night time marauders checking out the local garbage cans.
