The Raccoon's Return

We picked up a couple more raccoons over the last few days. A real mystery here--are these returning raccoons, or are they newcomers? You normally pick up on their presence by the presence of their scat (poop to the uninitiated). However, this time around it was the trilling of their night call. Most people probably mistake this sound for that of a bird. We caught the young raccoon first, and the calls of the mother were very sad. Now mother and child are re-united on the mainland.
