At our old apartment I learned the hard way not to put food out for the feral cats in the neighborhood. I didn't realize there were raccoons in the area until I heard a noise on the patio one night & turned on the light for that area. On the patio was a momma raccoon & her two babies munching away on the cat food I had put out.

Cute.

I saved 2 juvenile raccoons last night... they were stuck in a garbage can.

Feral cats shouldn't be encouraged even in the absence of raccoons.  The house across the road from me used to be rented by people who would feed them, which attracted them, and caused them to jump on my roof at night and cause damage - they knocked the screens off of my soffits a couple of times and one knocked the cover off of my stove's vent-hood exhaust, which caused water to get in the next time it rained and led to me having to repaint that area of ceiling.

Thankfully the owners decided to move back into the house so the people who were feeding the feral cats are gone.

Yep.. Raccoons LOVE some cat food. Pretty much ANY animal likes cat food because it has such a high fat content. It is basically the wildlife equivalent to french fries. Tasty, but not so good for you on a regular basis.

About the only thing that can actually thrive on cat food is cats.. and maybe opossums.

We have two neighbors that purposely feed them, as well as sheltered a family of possums in one of their backyards.

"Raccoons act as a reservoir for rabies in the United States.  In fact, the majority of rabies cases in the U.S. are in wildlife, with raccoon cases predominating."

No. No newer source will be handed to you.  Read the entire linked article and/or research on your own.  That';s what the vodak tells me to say.

In my experience, racoons are not entirely nocturnal, but wild ones are certainly shy from humans.  The 'coon in the video could either be as presented or more likely a family pet in some fashion.  Note that there was (presumably) a human holding that camera (that or they put the camera on a really shiatty tripod) and most racoons wild would run away from that scene.

We used to leave the garage door open a few inches at night so our cat could have some quality night time.  We soon found that her food container, with a nice snap-to-secure lid was scratched, open and nearing empty every morning.  I set a live trap outside the garage door, baited with cat food.  The very next morning we found a very unhappy and beligerant gray racoon in the trap.  Sonnofabiatch *barked* at me.  He got set free near a lake about 12 miles away.

Left the garage door open as a test that night.  Late evening, I went out and found that an oppossum was calmly eating food from the cat's bowl while the stupid cat was 3 feet away, rubbing against my leg.

Hell, I don't know.  Vodak.
