I spotted this large raccoon yesterday waddling across my backyard in the middle of the day, pretty much on the same path that many of the neighborhood cats use. Today I caught it in action near the side of my house with my video camera. Being a bit shy, it scrambled up a tree.
This animal is very large and could easily take any of the local cats. Please, cat owners, be aware we live close to a wildlife area and there most definitely IS wild life out there.
