Interesting Visitor

We had a visitor on Thursday. He showed up right before dinnertime.

Dumbest Coon in VA

He almost became dinner.

Come on down!

Come on down!

I don’t know where it came from, but the dogs were going NUTS. They wanted that coon. Bad.

Once I got the girls in the house, I watched to see what it would do. The dumb coon climbed down the tree, walked deeper into the yard, then climbed a smaller tree. It could have easily hopped over to the fence, into the driveway, onto the roof, etc. — any number of easy escape routes — from the first tree. Instead, it climbed the smaller tree in the middle of the yard. Then it backed down that tree and walked over to climb the big one again.

Dumbest coon I ever saw.

But it sure was cute.

  1. I just got done reading warnings about a breakout of distemper. It can be carried by raccoons and one sign is that the raccoon comes out in the day time when they usually wait until night.

  2. Jade, it was a pretty cheeky bugger. It was making all sorts of odd faces and noises.

    Thanks for the compliment on the dogs. I have nothing to do with their genetics, of course, but I think they’re pretty, too. 🙂
