That Rascally Raccoon
Raccoons, as cute as they are, are not welcome visitors at Downeast Thunder Farm. They long to eat my chickens and steal my suet feeders.
A few years ago I found the suet feeder hanging from my my porch post open, the suet cake missing. I replaced the suet cake and then wired the suet feeder closed – problem solved. Or so I thought! The next morning, I discovered that rascally raccoon had struck again. This time, the entire suet feeder had been snatched. When the snow finally melted that spring, I found the feeder discarded in the woods.
May this little guy bring you no trouble!
