Lots of tracks in mud in wet area

We counted at least 15. People feed them and have been for the past few years at least. I'm surprised no one has cracked down on it yet.
Photos are of the same track but one's shaded and one's not. Multi-tool is 2 x 6.5 cm.
I believe it's the scat of a common raccoon due to the similarity it holds with the raccoon scat found on this webpage:

It was small furry animal with a bushy stripped tail. It had a black stripe of hair around its eyes which looks like a mask.

Apparently early morning road kill on county road within a few hundred feet of property. Do not enjoy posting this photo of dead raccoon, so will replace when I can take one of living breathing one.
This raccoon was right next to an old Saw Mill which I’m thinking provided shelter and protection from predators and the harsh weather, but it didn’t provide much food. A few ways up Wyatt’s road was a store named Robbie’s market which had a variety of garbage for any hungry critter roaming at night.
The second raccoon that I observed was across from the New London Golf course in Forest, Virginia on 11/21/2013. This raccoon was obviously leaving the area because it was pointed in the opposite direction from the golf course. This golf course provided a haven for all woodland organisms, it had ponds, woodlands surrounding it, and an abundance of garbage for this mammal to eat due to the many golfers that attend tournaments and live there. But the reason it was leaving this area I wasn’t too sure, maybe do to competition with other mammals scavenging for food or looking for mates.
It was also located in the same area as the opossum observed on 11/21/2013. The raccoon and opossum could have shared this water, food source, and shelter.
Late September of 2010 I noticed a trail of funny looking paw prints in some wet soil on the side of my house. I set up a scouting camera, and the next morning I had this video. A mother Raccoon and at least two offspring. If you look closely, you can see a Mediterranean Gecko making its way up from the ground and disappearing into a crack in the wall just after the Raccoons pass by.
I stepped outside at around 10:00 pm and found this juvenile Raccoon sitting on a windowsill just off of our front porch. I surprised him, and he tried to conceal himself by squeezing into the corner of the window frame. Not too effective, but very comical!
A couple of days after I first found a very young, juvenile Raccoon on my front porch, I became concerned that maybe the Raccoon was on its own. There was no sign of its mother, or any siblings during our first encounter.
In order to find out for certain I set up a scouting camera (An automatic camera with a motion detector) on my front porch, and baited it with applesauce, cheddar cheese cubes, and water. Just a couple of nights later I started getting pictures of the young Raccoon.
As it turned out, the youngster was on its own.
This is a continuation of the story of a very young Raccoon that I discovered on my front porch one evening. Using a scouting camera I was able to verify that this juvenile Raccoon was on its own, with no mother or siblings.
I felt compelled to give the little guy a some assistance, and I started leaving out various food items for him. The young Raccoon soon became a regular visitor to the front porch, and my camera recorded several of his visits.
