What's That?

Took the dudes for a walk today. What did we see on the path a raccoon! All I had with me was my phone plus I had both dogs with me. I walked out into the field away from the coon. All I needed is for Tickle and Sherman to take off after the raccoon. The raccoon just sat there , the dudes didn't even notice it. I pulled my phone out and shot a few pics. Here they are not the greatest because the dudes wouldn't be still. Plus I was pretty far away.

What is that?

a raccoon!

I blew this up and cropped it, so you could see the raccoon it's a little blurry.
He never moved I was wondering if he was hurt.
We had a bad storm last night  high winds and a couple tornados in the area.

certainly could have been injured. i am most worried when i see nocturnal animals in the day time as i worry they have rabies. glad you kept the boys away.

Bet he had something wrong with him! Either that or he was very acclimated to people. I once had two very small raccoons come right up to me while i was sitting on a bench in the park and they climbed right up my leg and one sat on top of my head. Very stupid of me to allow that, but fortunately had no adverse effects. Glad your dogs did not decide to chase off this coon. Cute shot Saun

Be careful! They can be very dangerous.

Oh They are very common around here but not in the day time. B

HI Saun get to see the racoon and to get those shots for us to see. Never seen one.

I am glad you did not go close, it does seem weird for the raccoon to be just sitting there. Have a happy weekend, Saun!
