These pictures were taken on September 29th, 2009 in our back yard. Raccoons (also sometimes spelled Racoons) are normally nocturnal and therefore I was surprised to see him in mid day scavenging for food under my bird feeder. When I took a closer look at the pictures I understood why he was out during the day. Double click on the pictures and on the right side of his mouth you will see 6 or 7 Porcupine quills protruding from his mouth. This poor little guy must have done battle with a Porcupine and by the look of him, the Raccoon lost.
