Description

I was passing by Cat's Alley in an early evening when I saw several skunks, raccoons and one opossum eating the food people leave for the cats. They were so busy that they did not mind me staying close by (maybe about 5 m away). More skunks came and eventually there were six of them. However, at that point they started to fight. I tried to take a photo of the six skunks together but one left soon after, and I feared that I would get sprayed by them, so I also left. I caught five skunks in a few photos (http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/4669180)

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...
