Raccoons have often gotten a bad rap.
They are a nocturnal carnivore that will eat anything from berries and nuts to other small animals.
As mankind took over vast areas that inhabited racoons they were forced to contend with something lots of other animals have – a change in their natural supply of food.
Some species have not been very adaptable and have sadly gone extinct, but not the raccoon.
Raccoons are resourceful little critters that are not as fearless as others, despite their size they often approach human homes and search back yards and trash bins for food.
And sometimes, they just plain rob a bunch of cats, like in the video above.
We guess there’s a reason they’ve been nicknamed “Trash Pandas”.
