Brooklyn New York is about as urban as a place can be. But the noise and cars and people are not too daunting for this one. It walked around my porch fence one recent morning and then climbed an overhanging tree to settle down for a day’s sleep. For more details visit my blog at UrbanWildlifeGuide.net, and for more information about urban raccoons, try my Field Guide to Urban Wildlife.

  2. The more we encroach on its space the more wildlife must share ours.  Tolerance is the key.
