Bandit-Masked Intruders

We had some not-so-welcome company inside our garage last night.




Yikes!

One of the raccoons was missing an eye. He looked really scary. What's even more hair-raising is that raccoons are adaptable feeders, which means they will eat just about anything, from fish, mice, trash, tiny dogs . . . 

Raccoons are troublemakers and dangerous. They can also weigh 25lbs or more. Luckily, they're nocturnal, so during the day, all of us small dogs get to roam around our yard and take in the sun's rays.

They wreak havoc frequently at our home. They eat all our fish from the pond, attack the chickens in the middle of the night, and sometimes they even manage to open our food bins and eat all the dog food!

I do not like raccoons and that's final. Now, I'm sure you'll all believe me when I tell you that M has even raised a baby raccoon, but that was before my time.

These raccoons were lucky M was here. Had I been watching the house on my own, I would have taught them a lesson they'd never forget!

Please figure out how to get rid of them, too many small dogs at your place despite your feelings toward the little guy:) Our human brother has lost several big koi to those critters too.

Hope they were only homesteading for the one night.

Oh my dogness. Please be careful, Twink! You are a tiny dog! I hope you get rid of them soon before any more damage is done.

That's not nice of them to come in without asking. I don't think I like them either. They need to go back to their own homes & leave you alone!

Those critters can be most fierce. One came into my Uncle's house through the kitteh door and went mental fits all over the kitchen. Yikes. Be careful.

Twinkie,
Please be careful. You might have the heart of a Mastiff, and the personality of a Lion; but, you are a wee doggie.

Twinkie! Yeah you could be confused for a snack by them :O However, they like clean food from what I hear so if you never take a bath again, you should be raccoon proof ;P

Waggin at ya,
Roo

PeeS: Mom can't help herself. She really likes the little rascals. :)

What??? Holy smokes, those things are scary. Twinkie, we vote you get rid of those things!! They have simply crossed the line by eating your dog food.
