Nature Tuesday ~ Raccoons in the Lagoon

While walking along the Lagoon on a recent trip to Vancouver’s Stanley park, these three raccoons started swimming towards me. I hung around long enough to snap this photo. I heard a commotion behind me and the raccoons had reached the bank. A woman walking her dog had trouble controlling him as he was going straight for the raccoons. In trying to pull him away she almost fell. I guessed the dog scared the raccoons off and the went back into the lagoon. Both dog and owner survived.

  1. Great picture from these little looking thieves. Yes I encountered a few “raton-laveurs” (raccoon in French), once when a mother and babies were thrashing the trash can and again when they were walking through the backyard during late evening and once when a whole family were clinging on the upper portion of a house when they tripped a burglar light. Most of these critters are not aggressive and usually scurry away whenever they see or hear something or someone they do not not want to meet. Again, great shot…
