Raccoon Sighting!

Now that we moved our dinner table in front of the picture window facing the backyard, it increases our chances of seeing wildlife at dusk. Tonight we saw a raccoon come hobbling up from the park into our yard. It then made a beeline straight for the compost. Leotis had cleaned out the fridge earlier by throwing a piece of chicken out there, and it then made its way in the direction of the chicken. It disappeared and then reappeared (it, or another raccoon), coming out of the woods again, making another beeline for the compost. Unfortunately, the camera trap is sitting right here on my desk, because I took it down when they were chopping down another tree. Its batteries were dead too, but I will put it back up.
