I sometimes find my trashcans outside turned over and garbage strewn about the back yard or by the curb. Sometimes it can be a bear that has done it, but more often than not it is the work of the local raccoons. This would make me mad, but raccoons are cute innocent looking animals even though their behavior sometimes belies such a thing. Raccoons increasingly have become adaptable to city or rural settings. They have adapted. Learning to adapt is quite useful whether it is a raccoon or one of those creatures known as a human being.
