The other night, I was watching a television show I had recorded earlier. As I relaxed in my Lazyboy, I would hear sounds similar to those of someone hitting the wooden fence along the property line.
I paused the program and listened, and not hearing anything, assumed it came from the TV and went back to the show. A few minutes later, I heard the sound again and again, paused the show.
However, this time I heard the sound and it was coming from outside my door. I walked over to it and turned on the porch light.
And what to my surprised eyes did I see?
I have known Raccoons are in my area, but I had never seen one until I turned on that porch light. There were actually three of them (I later saw a third deep in the shadows of the apple tree), however the two pictured were cut off from the third because of where I was. As soon as I moved and didn’t pose a threat to their retreat through the branches, off they went and disappeared out of sight.
