Those are some weaponized baby raccoons!

Now you've made me think that it's the raccoons that are digging ?pointless? holes in my flowerpots. I was blaming squirrels, but I never found an acorn buried in those holes. I bought a big cannister of cayenne pepper and sprinkled it generously over the plants that seemed most popular. It worked great until the first good rain.

It probably is raccoons.

But hose spray doesn't faze them? My god, I hope you have good locks on your doors!

Used to be the feeder itself would disappear overnight. I'd maybe find it in the brush, torn to pieces. This last feeder for some reason stays put. I guess they find it just too easy to fish the seeds out, so why bother taking down the whole feeder? Plus, if we leave it up, Dumbass will fill it up again the next day. Give a raccoon a fish, and it eats for a day ....
