RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: Someone on my Wavelength

bfhkb1kvsscijnbgbf5c

The animals page of io9 recently ran an editorial written by Annalee Newitz, defending the place of raccoons in the current culture of the United States.  It’s a nice little article, including some historical information (although there’s a bizarre assumption that Western culture ignored the Native Americans’ writing on raccoons,) the results of limited scientific studies of raccoons’ intelligence, and of course plenty of adorable pictures.  Give it a read!
