Baby Raccoons in the backyard


Baby Raccoons in the backyard

Literally in our backyard, over our back deck in Salida, Colorado a couple of years ago, a momma raccoon deposited a trio of babies while she was busy with other duties. Our dog sounded off overnight, and we discovered the curious trio in the morning. Left alone, they managed to climb down, one by one, and rejoin mom.
