    Cute! I have a momma raccoon and her two almost grown babies coming to my dog dish every night to clean it out. She is very hateful to the little ones - but they always get a little to eat. I put the dog dish on the front porch but they still come every night - and also an UGLY possum.

    Do you still have your wild peacocks in your neighborhood?

    lock up the garbage cans-our neighborhood raccoon with 4 babies raids the neighbor's cans every night-I bought a rubbermaid shed to keep them out of mine

    So sorry but Saddly, no. They are all gone by a neighbors hand. He did not like them so one by one he did them in. It is very sad to me when people can't find the beauty in small things. I will always miss them.

    be a shame to lose wildlife. i've heard peacocks call and it's an eerie noise, but nothing to kill them over. he could be arrested by the spca/ animal control if there is proof he killed them.
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.
