Looks like a Fur Coat after swimming lessons to me, or 4 Daniel Boone hats for sure (3 w/o tails) :^)

RIP

Quote:
PALMERTON, Pa. -- What was billed as the world's heaviest raccoon has died.

Bandit tipped the scales at nearly 75 pounds -- three times the average for his breed.

He'd been the pet of Deborah Klitsch of Palmerton, Pennsylvania.

Bandit was born with a bad thyroid gland. When he hit 52 and a half pounds in 1999, his girth garnered him a spot in Guinness Book of World Records.

The junk-food crazed raccoon hunted down chips and cheese curls, Froot Loops and french fries. He was a regular at Ice Cream World, where he would sit in Klitsch's SUV, hold a cup of blue raspberry Slush with his paws and drink it through a straw.

Yeah, something tells me hypothyroidism wasn't his only reason for being so large.

He ate more than garden veggies to get that fat. I had one around that size here about 20 years ago. I thought it was a big dog when I first saw it. He had about a dozen females with him. They each had young, half grown baby coons as well. I had to declare war on them. They were distroying everything. It took me over 2 weeks to kill off most of them, but not before they put me OUT of business!

At that time, I was the "Fancy Fowl & Feather Farm". I raised & sold 32 breads of exotic poultry and hatching eggs. They killed or injured almost everything I had in the 2 weeks before I got the "Big Bad Boy". The few coons that were still alive went elsewhere to find their food after that.

And I used to think racoons were so cute.....

I did too! All baby animals are cute.
Hope all that rain & floods didn't affect you Tony. If the coons didn't get your fowl, the floods woulda.
