Late yesterday evening I was siting down on my front lawn repotting some flowers and I saw a HUGE raccoon walk past me! He stopped and starred me down. He was big! Much bigger than my cat...he was about the size of a medium sized dog. He looked kinda cute with his little black mask but I've heard that these critters can be really mean. I tossed a little dirt it's way and he scootted off. Has anyone encountered a raccoon before and are they really mean critters?
