I’ve railed against the whole “raccoons as thieves” stereotype in the past. But. sometimes, I guess you have no choice but to admit that raccoons can be thief-ish, especially when caught red-handed. This week a video showing a couple of raccoons making off with a big bag of food has been making the rounds.
I question how “caught” these two little critters–one of which manages drag away a 28 pound bag of cat food!–really were, however. After all, someone was standing there and recording the whole event (I think? You don’t hear any breathing or commentary from the camera person and the shot is remarkably still) and didn’t do anything to scare away the “culprits.” Additionally, notice the video is tagged with “cool” and “pets.” Pets? I think these raccoons aren’t stealing the food so much as being given it! This is an anti-raccoon false flag operation!!
