A raccoon was spotted today 5 ft from our front door, snuggled in a tree and looking a little disoriented. I've never seen a raccoon so close before! Unfortunately I had to go in and get my camera (and go through the back door so I didn't get attacked) and by the time I got it loaded up the raccoon had disappeared. Below is a picture to give you the general idea of what I saw though. Raccoons are cute! But I hear they can be MEAN.
