learning to climb

By oldgii
this little guy is the last of his family.....judging by the evidence on the highway....the lone survivor.....this is one time i hope i'm wrong

once, a long time ago, i came across a raccoon kitt and thought i would rescue it ....took it to my brother-in-laws place out in the country and talked him into caging it and feeding and raising it.

to make a long story short that beautiful little critter survived and grew into a big old buck raccoon in a cage and became a nasty piece of work......and that's what cages do to wild animals.

well this time i walked away and left this little fellow climbing up that big hollow maple and i wish him well.

no cages.
