Raccoons that live in cities and towns are much more successful than their country cousins. In fact, they’re thriving with us. Their knack for mischief has earned them a reputation, but there’s way more to the raccoon than just trashcan thievery. They are smart, adaptable, and are equipped with an array of incredible senses allowing them to maximize on every opportunity humans provide. From using our sewer system as an underground highway, to infiltrating our chimneys and attics for den sites, they have become the ultimate urban operators. Take a look into a year in the life of the furry masked bandits that not only live in your neighborhood, but know it better than you do.
