I am not always nocturnal. I like food, and I will get aggressive if I know you have food and you ain’t sharing it, I will bite, I growl, my claws are sharp, I will stare down a dog of equal or lesser sizes, I communicate, but only some of you can comprehend, I can climb, swim, jump, do flips in the air, sit like a person, but I do have a personality, and I am smart, I have feelings, and I’m cute.
Please respect and preserve my presence.
I’m a raccoon!
I explain more in this video Wildlife at North Lake in Golden Gate Park
And here are one of many fine encounters I’ve had with the raccoons.
Raccoons at Night
Although it’s illegal to feed them people still do. Why because people love them.
