Tippi met a young Raccoon tonight
And it was not love at first sight....
The critter on the feeder got mad
What a bitter feud they had!

There was the sound of mayhem
With political warfare tween them,
Both controlled their domain
On each side of the window pane!

The young raccoon got rather feisty and of course we did not let Tippi outside nor did I go outside either but shot this picture through the window at 8:45 PM. The raccoon eventually left with his dignity and pride intact because It was not intimidated by Tippi:-)

    Wow, what a stand-off, of course Tippi was the winner of this battle of the wills! Great timing and story!

    Priceless. Like old Davy Crockett, I think Tippi was about to run that old coon up a tree. Life Magazine would have paid a fortune for this back in the day.

    An awesome capture of this stand-off! Lots of drama in this image and I am so glad there was a window pain between them!

    Thank you for the comments...I was happy as well that there was a window between them considering that the young raccoon looked ready to pounce..The older raccoon who had been coming before didn't get as riled up... I didn't want to put Tippi outside as raccoons can get vicious when they are angry.
