They're Baaack!

     Well, apparently these guys haven't learned their lesson.  These shots are from the third day in a row that they found themselves unable to get out of the dumpster.  Judging by the tattered and torn garbage bags that are scattered throughout the
 dumpster they've been having themselves quite a feast!  This one over here got himself into some discarded white paint.  Someone had tossed a mostly-empty paint bucket liner against the side of the dumpster, and dad first saw the sliding paw marks up the side from where the paint was spilled.  And then he looked off toward the other end and saw the white-pawed one and laughed.  Soon after dad got these pictures he opened the back of the dumpster again, and they hurried off into the woods.  I'll be curious to see if they drop in again today.

There is a special way,safe and environmentally safe way of disposing paint and it sure isn't to toss it out with the rest of the garbage! Awww poor raccoons! I hope the paint washes off or they don't get poisoined by it! :-(

Glad your dad was there to help them get out again, lovely Orbit! These are hungry, hungry animals! Poor things. Take care

Oh, they are SO cute.
Bless them, they must be hungry,lets hope they don't get sick or hurt foraging in the dumpster♥

I feel for the wild animals of this messed up planet, their habitat is being plundered the world over, humans disrespect them and hurt them just because they are inquisitive and hungry :(
