Imagine my surprise when I went to put out a bag of trash finding this cute guy in our can!
We didn’t quite know what to do with him, so we called Berkeley animal control – in the phone book, it is very politically correctly listed as Animal Care Services. They sent someone out right away, who turned our trash can over and let the raccoon out (well, I could have done that, too!).
Turns out that raccoons are another species we coexist with, like deer, dust mites, spiders, rats, and so on.
Isn’t this one a cutie? He kind of reminds me of the boys!
