Description

This medium-sized carnivore, a Northern Raccoon, has not been documented in Hudspeth County, Texas in most resources. The last known record was in the 1930’s, and specimen has been cited from the extreme southern part of the county from the 1970’s. This one was deceased, very likely hit by a car, as we saw it on the edge of I-10, a major freeway, heading through the east side of Sierra Blanca around mile marker 108 (heading east). The specimen was found by Vicente Mata-Silva and Dominic DeSantis. Although not common in the area, this animal can be easily identified by its black facial mask outlined in white, and alternating black/white(or bluff) rings on the tail. They are widely abundant throughout America, but need a consistent source of water. There were cattle farms near the location of the Raccoon carcass, so this would have provided the necessary water. Raccoons are nocturnal and omnivorous.

Description from Wikipedia

Procyon is a genus of nocturnal mammals, comprising three species commonly known as raccoons, in the family Procyonidae. The most familiar species, the common raccoon (P. lotor), is often known simply as "the" raccoon, as the two other raccoon species in the genus are native only to the tropics and less well known. Genetic studies have shown that the closest relatives of raccoons are the ring-tailed cats and cacomistles of genus Bassariscus, from which they diverged...
