Stop, Thief!

The strawberry thief was caught red handed, unable to resist the combination of fresh sliced strawberries and peanut butter.

He was rather calm and accepting of his temporary imprisonment until our dog came to investigate, then he became quite aggressive and vocal.  He was released shortly after this at an undisclosed location far away from our residence.

New research in raccoon behavior suggests they are rather social animals, and often communicate locations of food sources to other raccoons.  If this is the case, there are probably more raccoons to trap and release just like this one.

This hopefully means more strawberries for us and our customers!

    Tried this before but I think I eliminated it by accident. Sorry if this is a duplicate.

    He is so cute. My Mom raised a raccoon when I was young; she tried raising all kinds of animals. She was such an animal lover — the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    Too bad there isn’t a market for raccoons — you’d have a booming business!

    Great website. Pictures are fantastic. Now we can see what you are doing all year not just in August.
