Have you ever tried to save something that really doesn't want to be saved? That seems to be what happened when an Illinois woman made a brave attempt to save some dumpster-diving raccoons. It did not seem to me that they really wanted "saving".
I've heard it said that it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog. That principle works for cats, too and I can prove it with a raccoon who got the jump-scare of his life thanks to a feline who is convinced he's Chuck Norris.
Authorities found a disturbing situation involving wild animals in a Sandwich, Illinois home. 20 wild animals including several who were deceased have been removed and police are trying to determine if charges are justified.
Of all of natures animals, there is none more talented than a raccoon when it comes to what they're capable of to get to a food source. As exhibit A, I present to you a Midwestern raccoon who contorted himself like a gymnast so he could gain access to a bird feeder.
