Apparently the woman leaves cat food on her deck, and a specific racoon gets upset when the food bowl is empty. But instead of taking his feelings, checking into a room, only to find Gideons Bible, this Rocky Raccoon learned that if it took a rock and repeatedly knocked on the glass doors of the house, the owner would eventually feed it again. - photo by Martha Ostergar
BLACK MOUNTAIN HILLS OF DAKOTA As everyone well knows, the Internet is run purely on cat videos, pictures and memes, according to no research.

That being said, other animals receive more that a little Internet love, including animals that are considered to be scavenging pests in suburban settings. Yes, Im speaking of the black-eyed, ring-tailed racoon.

I will fully admit that raccoons do puppy dog eyes better than most puppy dogs, and they have their adorable and funny moments. Just look at this raccoon eating popcorn and this raccoon doing somersaults. While they do have a cute value, they are still wild animals smart and dexterous wild animals which is exactly what leads to a very loud and annoying raccoon problem in this video.

Apparently the woman leaves cat food on her deck, and a specific racoon gets upset when the food bowl is empty. But instead of taking his feelings, checking into a room, only to find Gideons Bible, this Rocky Raccoon learned that if it took a rock and repeatedly knocked on the glass doors of the house, the owner would eventually feed it again. In fact, the video description says the raccoon will roll a rock on the window for hours.

The woman says she thinks this is cute, but to me its the raccoon equivalent of a small child saying mom, mom, mom, mom for hours to constantly get her attention. (Or when poor Jimmy Stewart is having a terrible day at the beginning of Its a Wonderful Life, if you prefer.)

But hey, as long as this raccoon is harassing that lady and not me, this situation is pretty hysterical.
