There’s no need to fear them. Their boldness and scavenging can sometimes annoy people, but there are smart, kind ways to live peacefully with raccoons nearby.
It doesn’t have to be this way. These beautiful animals can be fun to watch, but keep them at a distance. The best way to protect your family and home—and the raccoons too—is to make sure you’re not accidentally tempting them with unsecured trash or other invitations.
Raccoons like to wash their food before they eat it, with paws that look a lot like human hands.
By taking a stand against the fur industry in refusing to purchase its products, you’ll encourage designers to stop using fur and other animal skins, retailers to stop selling them and style writers to stop touting cruelty as fashionable.
