Looks Can be Deceiving
110 words, unfinished
Oh, I had so much more to say about these cute little guys than six minutes allowed!
You don’t fool me, little raccoon! Looking so cute and pleading to be scooped up! I know raccoons, and you only look innocent and cuddly.
Take a look at those claws of yours, claws capable of ripping open the belly of a dog that makes the mistake of cornering you in a suburban garage.
I’ve seen raccoons chase people, and you can run 15 mph! You pull chickens out of their coops, ripping them right through the wires.
I’ve seen ignorant families with baby raccoons in pet carriers, as I learned the futility of convincing pet store employees not to fuss and coo, as you are illegal pets here.
You also carry rabies!
