When I came home tonight, my wife said that giant, pig-sized raccoons jumped out of the bushes and ran to the woods as she was about to cook some steaks on the grill. I found this funny because I've never seen a racoon in Redmond. I said they must have been bear cubs. Either way, the steak was awesome.

BTW: My home town in Wisconsin is somewhat famous for a certain raccoon...

The house in the picture is just around the corner from my mom and dad's.

    Probably ‘possums. Vaguely similar colouring (just not the tail and mask) and in the area (I see them dead along a lot of roads — especially Sammamish Parkway)

    I checked again with her. Fat, spectacular, ring tails, animals the size of hogs. Maybe they were sasquatch babies. 🙂

    Come on, of course there are racoons in Redmond, Brian! I don’t think I’ve seen any that were pig sized, (I’m not really sure what pig-sized is when it comes to racoons) but I’ve certainly seen them both skulking about and (I’m very sad to say), on the road… You know, I had a friend who lived in wallingford who had what she called giant racoons take over her place while they were gone for a week. Maybe they are the same ones!
