    Just a heads up, the raccoons are not afraid of anyone or anything!!! Keep coolers and all food containers locked.. I had a sub in the car with windowed down about 2" and they got in and ate my steak sub. We had not even got the pup cranked up yet!!!!!!!!!! Dogs are a deterrent or run a motion sensor with a dog bark!! lol

    A lot of what should be wildlife in Florida (and other places) no longer have a fear of humans due to people feeding them. We stayed at Hillsborough River State Park spring 2018 the squirrels would jump on the table and grab food as soon as you looked away. A raccoon reached under the skirting of the screen room and drug a bag of trash under the PUP, caused me to hit my head on the bunkend of the PUP. I try to keep a cane about 4-6' long 1/8-1/4" thick at the tip to instill a little fear back into them when they get close enough.
