    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.

    My daughter had peacocks - gave them away. Ate everything green - roosted on house and driveway covered with poop. They're pretty but----- you can have 'em. Coons???? cute but really pests. I have to keep a large concrete block on my garbage can to keep them out. And I just quit fighting them over the bird feeders and hummingbird feeders. They not only tear them down but take 'em out in the woods. Hate opossums too! Hate the way they hiss at you when trying to run them away.
