    Lonely Babies

    We have had many raccoons in our backyard over the last few years and didn't think much of it. But two summers ago we noticed there were five babies hiding under our sunroom and the more we paid attention we noticed their mother was no longer with them for some reason or another...

    I Can't Wait To Go Huntin'
