Description

I saw these raccoons eating our dog food I front of our house. There were about five of them. I am not too sure on the exact species, but I think they are the northern raccoon. They weren't too shy, but still were kinda skittish around noises (such as the door opening and closing).

Description

This skunk was found with the raccoons I saw and posted. He ( or she) was enjoying eating the dog food right along side the raccoons. Though, he was a lot more skittish than the raccoons. I think it is a striped raccoon, because; 1, it fits the description. And 2 I live kinda close to the coast of California.
