I think this link fits in here, because although it's not about raccoons, it is about critters (in an indirect sort of way): Barnum’s Animals crackers

After more than a century behind bars, the beasts on boxes of animal crackers are roaming free.

That's pretty cool!

This is the best I can do for now. This is mom. She's not sure whether or not to trust me. Her kits run away if they even suspect I'm nearby. I suspect they'll be under my house all winter. Why leave now?! o_O

@ moomin :)) well that sorted that out!

@Suzie - She's beautiful! Well done for getting a picture of her, and good luck with getting her kits on camera too :)

@DLL - I really didn't know what to expect - and I was right to do that :)

https://www.connexionfrance.com/French-news/sex-mad-dolphin-forces-mayor-of-coastal-French-town-to-ban-swimming

An overly amorous dolphin has prompted the mayor of a coastal town in Finistère to ban swimming in the sea.

The dolphin, which has been named Zafar, is well-known in the Plougastel-Daoulas area - and has even become something of a mascot to kayakers and other water sports enthusiasts.

But as it enters mating season, the animal has moved further down the coast to Landévennec, a small town famous for its abbey - where it has been butting up alongside boats and chasing swimmers.

I don't know if anybody knows how this happened.
But obviously there is someone who snatched her from the zoo.
Someone who did it for money of course:(

Anyway here is a better picture of her:)

Grace is still doing ok, though She has in the last week tossed Her cookies 5 times,
and I've lost something, if you see 55lbs laying around, kick it into a dumpster, I'm down to 396lbs.
