I put the cats food in a tote with a very tight lid and 4 flap type locks to keep the racoons out. The litte buggers broke into it the first night. They are clever beyound belief.

Re: ...
My son came home from school, leaving his metal lunch box on the deck table.

Some time later, hearing a noise, I look out a window...a raccoon is opening the latch on his lunchbox with his little fingers, as if he's done this all his life.

Stunned, I continue to watch. He takes out the remainder of a peanut butter sandwich, tastes it, puts it aside, and removes a partially eaten apple, which he starts eating.

As cute as this is, I'm certain I don't want these critters making this a habit...so I chase him. This went on for some time, as they had discovered the trash bins, which we had to finally put into the garage. I thought they had moved on.

Little did I know a family of them started living in the eaves.

Before the winter was over, we had to hire someone to smoke them out and repair the damage they had done.

How did we find them? After an ice storm, I was driving my car out of the garage when I noticed that the bottom corner of the eave was pulled down. As I was looking at it through the windshield, I saw a few 'lights' shininhg from the darkness of the damage...which turned out to be the EYES of a number of raccoons.

They are perhaps the cutest, most intriguing pests one can have around...which are poised to cause any homeowner a nightmare, if around.

BEWARE of such pretty poison.

One time when I was coming up the basement stairs, I had the feeling I was being watched. I turned my head and was face to face with one of the many Raccoons that live near me. They are very cute, but they wrecked our shed and actually ate the cushions on our patio furniture. My dog HATES them with a passion, and they're afraid of him. Good. Sometimes I feel like I'm living in Pawnee Indiana, but I live at the New Jersey Shore. Why the hell do we have Raccoons at the shore?

When I was doing a boat trip down in the FL keys there were many racoons at Flamingo state camp ground. We had a zip up cooler packed w/food in the boat.
Racoons amazingly were able to unzip it and ate a large portion of the contents.
iIncluding chip dip, then proceeded to poop all over the boat, what a disgusting mess.

If you find them, please don't kill the creatures. They have a hard enough life trying to stay warm and dry with a full belly. Call a re-habber. They will come out and take them out of your hair for you.

I knew someone who had 4 of them as pets, raised since they were wee babies.

They are a pain in the azz. They get into everything. No cabinet or drawer is safe. They open and examine everything and don't put things back in their proper place.

Once while camping near our home in California, we were awoken by noises outside the tent. We went out and found three raccoons shredding the pads off of the roll bars on our jeep.

Another time, camping at the same place, we were again awoken from our tent. I saw several raccoons run out the door of our camper, they had somehow opened the door (latch was up high), gone inside and opened the fridge, smashed eggs all over the floor, spilled milk and stolen a loaf of bread.

Another time, I heard a noise on my back patio, I went out to find a large raccoon with it's head inside our dog's food bin. It had punched a hole through the "unbreakable" Rubbermaid bin to get at the food. I tried to chase it away, but it stood up like a bear and hissed at me violently. I grabbed a broom and he ran off when I raised it.

They are cute little critters, but can be a real pain in the ass.

Yes and they can figure stuff out too. I was keep two silkie chickens in a dog cage in my barn. I had one side of the cage covered with a special type of metal cloth to keep the coon from sticking his hands in to grab a bird and eat it's head off. I had this big cage up against a wall. One night, they pulled the entire cage off the wall, got to the unprotected side, reached in and pulled one of the birds head out and they ate the head and neck off. Luckily it was not a hen that the coon killed.

One night my wife then (ex now) and I were fishing out of my little 14ft boat and kept hearing something hitting the water beside the boat. I shined my spot light at the bank of the lake and a mother coon was throwing rocks at our boat.

She had 3 little ones with her and when the light hit her she said something to her babies and they ran up a nearby tree. It was an amazing experience and they were all so cute.

She must have thrown the rocks 20-25 feet accurately
