Feb 7, 2013 Full story: Denver Post 7

Workers using a tower crane to build a 304-unit apartment complex in Seattle have run into a complication: two raccoons climbed 150 feet up the crane and made a home behind the crane's cab.

Raccoons are major league interesting guys.
We've got them in my neighborhood. They're mostly "invisible" and they make every effort to steer clear of us humans. Wish some of my neighbors would take a page...
For sure, they're not to be messed with, and while I've heard new stories re rabid 'coons, there's never been an incident with any in our semi secluded area.

WELL ...THEY CANNOT get in their SUV's to go to the nearest supermarket to get some food , so they have to look and look and look and take whatever they can find,we humans are exterminating them at fast speed....we replace natural vegetation for malls and parking lots.Only rednecks don't respect life.!
