      I didn't know raccoons could run like that.

        We had an issue camping years ago and found they could open the latch on our cooler.
        They are tricky bandits.
        Another time before it was blown over in a storm, our willow Tree in the back yard had a hole in It that some squirrels made into a home .
        On a very windy night I saw some eyes at ground level at my fence then at my eye level. I soon recognized it was a raccoon up the back side of the trunk it went right to the squirrels hole .He reached in grabbed one and was down then over the fence and gone in a heartbeat. It was a shock to see how cunning by using the howling wind as cover.

    There is a racoon that visits my cat, Moocher, at night. At least it finishes off what I put in Moocher's bowl during the day.
    Moocher used to be a begging stray if you're wondering about the name.
    When I was a corrections officer, I watched three baby racoon climb up the brick wall of a prison tower at night.
    They could not get past my grated see-thru steel catwalk. So they turned about and climbed down FACE FIRST. Their mama passively watched the whole show.

    Raccoons scare me. I saw a video of a pack of them attacking a human. One year mama raccoon taught her little ones our deck was their safe space, which sent me flying off the back a couple times. Our one cat befriends all craters, bringing home foxes, snakes and even came trailed by a coyote one day. I think he had plans to either eat him or stay for dinner. Luckily, the dog ran him off. We had a seven foot black snake who spent the entire summer with our courtyard as home base, but I will not let raccoons set up shop, they are nasty.

    Animals had it first. Predators and parasites exist in all species, from the ground up since the beginning of life. It's an evolutionary necessity. Territorial defense at the most primitive level became the human notion of private property rights of individuals, to be mutually respected by all members of society. That just triggered the more complex mechanisms of deceit, surreptitious theft, and legislative plunder, sugar-coated under the misleading idea of "liberalism" as good for everyone. In a world of institutionalized fraud, deception and conniving manipulation, the honest person with rational ethics is at a great disadvantage. The best one can do is select carefully one's associates, and not become predatory in turn. That brings up a fine line between self-interest and self-sacrifice.

    This just looks like a strong-arm robbery, to me.
    That raccoon is probably strong enough to rip a cat's head off. I've seen one do it to a chicken. The cats are obviously armed only with small (1/2" blade or less) knives due to government regulations. I'm sure he'll go into politics sooner or later, though. Better to have them bring it to you.
