Something has been raiding our garbage, and I suspect it's a raccoon, only because the creature in question has been employing a certain level of stealth and finesse. A bear tends to just rip through everything and toss the trash car around. Plus, they make a lot of noise and spread the mess over a large area. This creature has simply knocked the can over and ripped open selective bags, making cleanup a little easier. I haven't seen the guy, and A has not heard anything even though her window is close by.
It's sort of a bummer waking up and seeing all your garbage strewn about your front yard, but such is life in the wilds of New England. I'll take a raccoon over a bear any day.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to bee happy123 for the pic.
