Raccoons are incredibly cute, lovely little bears. There are some here in Vancouver too, and 5 yrs ago I became friends with a half blind female raccoon, who came up to me at night, asking for food for herself and her 2 kids who were there with her. I called her Iphigenia ("Fiffy") and she raised up some kids every year, bringing them up to me, and I took photos of them and gave oatmeal cookies to them. I still meet Fiffy sometimes, but she is alone. There are very cute videos about raccoons on Youtube. Some of them are kept as house pets, they behave like little dogs, playing with their hosts. I write now here in defense of these lovely animals among us, because a neighbor, who knows my love for these tiny bears, told me recently that he saw one raccoon dead, run over by a car in the middle of a crossing. Some brute ran that raccoon over on purpose at night, because that particular wide crossing is between two secondary streets, where all cars must slow down to respect the right-hand rule. So that driver saw the raccoon crossing at night and sped up to run that raccoon over. This destructive trait of humans will backfire on the overgrown human crowd, which destroys Nature and the entire Earth. I love critters and they show their love for me, some of them taking food from my hand - raccoons, squirrels (some neighbors had several of my squirrel friends poisoned), pigeons, and street cats. But selfish people tell me not to feed any critters, because then skunks come too for the food I put out, and those skunks might spray their small dogs. Because those selfish people have dogs, and they walk them early morning, at noon and at late night too. The selfish crowd forgets that what goes around comes around and their selfish attitude will come around to get them too.
