What a night... mapaches.

Never underestimate the power of a plate of pork chop hash and the thought of two raccoons sitting in the walnut tree directly above your duck house to keep you awake and thoughtful all night. About 2:30 in the morning Alka-Seltzer felt pretty good in reigning in the former, but the latter... let's just say, me and my great dog Irma took turns peering into the tree at four flashing eyes, and barking.

Update, a picture... don't let the cuteness fool you.

Nice pic! I have also dealt with the aftereffects of hash, but not raccoon blight. I usually welcome the raccoons, as I have no fowl to protect. Actually, it's been so long since they visited...I wish they'd come back!

Josh, have you noticed whether or not the raccoons have driven away the squirrels?
Also, have you seen the movie, "They Shoot etc?
