I have always welcomed wildlife to my yard.
It belonged to nature long before it belonged to me.
But I am being tested by a young raccoon.
The problems started months ago when my planter box became a latrine.
I fixed that problem with ammonia soaked rags.
The latrine moved around the corner to in front of the kitchen door.
I fenced off the entrance to the deck so that nothing can enter. (including me)
Then the raccoon fell through the roof of the bunny pen and broke out through the gate. Both had to be repaired.
Now it climbs my vines and poops in front of the library door
after raiding and ruining my trash cans.
I have had enough of Tricky Ricky.
I hope his future involves a trap instead of a gun.
Sometimes nurturing nature bites.
I cannot allow raccoon destruction and diseases to enter my environment.
