The Great Raccoon Hunt Update

The lastest total in live trapped raccoons so far this summer. How many more could possibly be in the gaze?

I did a little research into raccoons today.

The question came up, what do you call a collection of raccoons?  A warren?  No, that's rabbits.

So with a little help from the internet and wikipedia.org we learned that they could be called a "nursery" for younger coons, or,  a "gaze".

The reason I ask, my family has trapped over 21 raccoons so far this summer, courtesy of the dog warden who has lent a live trap to us.

It boggles the mind that so many of these scavengers could be living so close to our home in the city, doesn't it?
