The less glorious than named Raccoon Mountain near Chattanooga, TN is a popular attraction among tourists and hikers. As much as anything in Chattanooga could be popular or attract tourists, at any rate. I know I was super disappointed by the lack of raccoons at the place, but stoked by the abundance of raccoon merchandise in the gift shop. Sadly, thieving scum have been making a trip to raccoon mountain a more perilous prospect, as there’s been a rash of break ins at the parking lot. Of course, the local police and newspaper suspect human thieves. I don’t mean to be racist or anything, but I’m just saying that the place is called Raccoon Mountain, so a bunch of raccoons nearby seems likely.
