    Default Racoons

    I met these critters in El Realejo, Chinandega, Nicaragua. They are super tame and affectionate.



    Conocí a estos animalitos en El Realejo, Chinandega, Nicaragua. Son bien mansitos y cariñosos.

    Those around here are not that tame and are larger. I've found that they will eat about $10.00 of cat food a week, even though one has it in a safe container.

    I couldn't help but to recall going to an ice cream and watermelon party at a friends ranch cabin. I was driving down this dirt road and a baby coon was standing there, so I jumped out of my car and took off after this little bity coon.

    God this chase was on as I was rapidly closing the distance between me and this squealing baby coon. He ran up a fencepost and was crying and looking at me, as I was pondering a safe manner in which to retrieve my prize without getting eaten, when he bailed off of that post toward me and the chase was on in the other direction with a 2 pound coon in hot pursuit of the fat man.

    Oh God, my sister had a coon for a pet and the rascal went up a tree in the yard and Stoned to shit I was, she asked me to go get him.

    I was 9 feet tall and bullet proof at the time.

    So I like the ass that I am went up the tree to fetch the critter.

    Really I didn't know him much nor did he of me. And when I got close the basturd he snarled and went on me like white on rice.

    Damn we fought falling thru the air and busted on the ground and fought some more till my sister got him off of me, he had my ass kicked.

    We had to break out the Iodine and cotton balls later to dob it on my scratches and bites.

    Better they in a cook pot than in a tree....

    When I lived at Pelican Eyes, they had a Raccoon who spent most of his time in his hammock. When he wasn’t enjoying the hammock he was doing his other job, chicken population control, which he did quite well, no one ever said chickens were smart.

    Little beggers up here can open the lid of a BBQ and steal left over chops.

    We even had one episode where the cooler was left out and in the morning there was the ham, lettuce, tortillas and salsa scattered across the deck.. I guess wraps are in now and sandwiches old school
