Have I not been telling you all to be afraid of the danger lurking in our dumpsters at night? I may like raccoons, but I recognize the dangers that they pose. I’ve warned about the impending downfall of man at their adorable, Doritos dust soaked paws, and finally someone respectable is backing me up. This week, naturalist (not to be confused with naturist) Jim McCormac wrote an article for the Columbus Dispatch about how awesome raccoons are. For example, did you know they can rotate their hind paws 180 degrees? Now imagine if they were holding pistols in those hind paws. That’s right, they can shoot at someone behind them with the flick of a wrist!
Anyway, lots of other interesting stuff is to be found in the article. I recommend you give it a read.
