Another day, another mammal

If I posted an entry about every raccoon we capture and transport, they'd all look pretty much the same.

Bright eyes reveal a look of suspicion and contempt. This one had an air of resignation:

Raccoons are also smart enough to eat the food rather than letting the fear of their predicament kill their appetite. "OK. Gonna be in here for unknown amount of time. Might as well enjoy the meal."

The release spot we've been using for a couple years now:

And usually an exit so fast I can't even get a photo:

The strongest glare of "suspicion and contempt" we ever got from inside our Havahart trap was from a neighbor's cat.

Ever catch a skunk in one?

Nice segue -- Casey Anthony is also being released today.

You're good people.

Ha! No skunks; in fact i've never seen one around here. I'd like to keep it that way!

But yes, from Casey Anthony to skunks is a great segue! That was what you meant, right?

Actually we are rather good people 8~) but this isn't so much a demonstration of that! These things are a threat to Scooter, and he is Priority around here. And we have at least 2 more raccoons to evict this week. Not that the supply ever runs out!
