    So the strangest thing has been happening lately! Dh bought a box of dog treats for the outside dogs and keeps the food and treats in the garage. Brand new box, only 3 treats out of it. Closes the garage door, comes in house and in for the night. Well, yesterday morning dh went out to go to work and always gives the dogs treats before he goes. So he opened the garage door, went to box of treats and it is completely empty! Only a few crumbs. No signs of chewing on the box just an empty box! What the heck!! Do not know what it is or how it got in!! So he goes out last night and gets another box of treats, closes garage door, comes in house. Goes out this morning and guess what..no treats! Seriously?! No chewing on box. So now have to figure out what this thing is..just hope its not a skunk...eww

    Raccoons are very good food thieves!

    I'd be careful, if you keep feeding it like that it is going to be gigantic. Good luck.

    Yes, sounds like a raccoon to me too - they can even open Tupperware.

    The scary part - if everything is locked up - they're already living with you.

    Yep sounds like a raccoon to me. I would get a plastic container for the treats, one with a lid that will lock on tight. Now that they now the treats are there they will keep coming back.
