They shall run upon the wall, they shall
climb up upon the houses: They shall
enter in at the windows like a thief...Joel 2: 9.
This thief of the night,
Was a stranger
Who for me posed
No threat or danger.
He said in meeting,
"I won't bite
Thru' a window closed
And will be leaving soon
With other raccoons,
Just let me finish eating!"
Poetry by me, AJP
I learned my lesson several years ago in attempting to take a picture outside of a mother raccoon at the home place of my folks..She had 5 young ones...She chased me right in the house and I almost slammed the door on her nose...I would not recommend getting that close to a wild raccoon again unless there is a closed window or door between you...There is always a danger of a raccoon having rabies. This raccoon jumped on the feeder last night...and I was glad I did not have my zoom lens on as there was no time to change it and went with the 18-55 mm lens I had on my camera..It was 3 feet away from the window. It was 9:00 PM when I shot this picture and I set the camera lens right on the window and used flash.
