Funny raccoon going through garbage in Toronto

This funny raccoon in Toronto is going through garbage in a dumpster. You can try to keep raccoons out of your garbage. To keep persistent raccoons out of your trash, you could try to sprinkle a little ammonia on each trash bag.

You could also try to spread mothballs around the outside of your trash cans to deter animals from getting too close. Raccoons are nocturnal animals - they prowl around at night. You could try to keep your trash can area brightly lit with flood lights. This light can also be a deterrent to raccoons.

Raccoons can be dangerous to have on your property or your house. If you or your pet come into contact with a raccoon and are bitten or scratched you should seek important immediate medical help.

Aggressive raccoons can happen. A normal raccoon certainly wouldn't attack a person. However, sometimes they will "bluff" if they feel threatened, cornered or afraid for some reason. Raccoons may huff, grunt, or "charge" at you. They could try to scare off other animals. You don't have to come close to raccoons.

A raccoon is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. The raccoon is the largest of the procyonid family, having a body length of 40 to 70 cm and a body weight of 5 to 26 kg. Its beautiful grayish coat mostly consists of dense underfur which insulates it against cold weather. Raccoons have great skillful paws. Raccoons look like they have a facial mask. They have ringed tails.

Raccoons are usually nocturnal and omnivorous. They eat about 40% invertebrates, 33% plants and 27% vertebrates.

The original habitats of the raccoon are deciduous and mixed forests. However, these animals can adapt. They can live in mountainous areas, coastal marshes and urban areas. In urban cities, many homeowners try to scare away raccoons from their homes.

In the last few centuries, raccoons have become more widely distributed in this world. You can now often see them across much of mainland Europe, Caucasus, and Japan.

In Canada, raccoons can be found in northern Alberta, southern B.C. and Saskatchewan, central Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario, southern Quebec and the Maritimes. Raccoon ranges can be different for different raccoons. However, there is very little evidence that they are territorial.
