I was sitting on the couch last night
when I glanced out the french doors to our deck
and noticed our raccoon friend staring at me.
He had that guilty look on his face.
I then looked at our suet feeders that hang in our tree,
which are a favorite target of our furry friend,
and saw that the feeders were still full of suet.
The raccoon then exited stage right off the deck.
He was obviously biding his time,
waiting for my wife and I to go to bed
so he could have his way with the hanging suet feeders.
"Look how cute he is"
is a refrain I hear regularly from my wife.
Below are some before and after photos
showing the work of Mr. Raccoon.
Notice this feeder
hanging from a chain, with one link
securing the door to the basket.
Now notice the feeder.
IT'S NOT THERE ANY MORE!!!!
I had that feeder secured so well to the chain
that I found it a pain in the neck to refill,
AND I HAVE OPPOSABLE THUMBS.
It seems Mr. raccoon was really pissed last night.
Notice the feeder below.
A 2 sided feeder, each side with it's own door
which is secured shut
with metal clips
to keep Mr. raccoon out.
So he just decided to remove
one half of the house completely.
Not so much.
