Why .. is there a bat or a fox in that picture I can't see .. or are you just being trite?

"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."

"Summer 2003 Newsletter"

No newer source of info?

/not being snarky, just prefer less-stale data

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.

Seriously, I admire that raccoon and wish I had more of his confidence.

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.
