Missy the Raccoon

This photo was taken at a home in Horseshoe Bay West. Missy would come around nightly for her evening meal. She soon started bringing her 3 children to share in the meal. As many as 7 raccoons, a skunk and an opossum would come around each evening. The raccoons would fight, scream and hiss at each other and cause such a disturbance, that the feedings were finally stopped to end all of the fighting. One raccoon was named Patches because of all of the patches of fur he had missing from the fights he had been in with the other raccoons.
