    There fun, we`ve had them as pets before, eventually instincts take over and they leave.
    Ya have to get them when they`er babies to have them as a pet, and they do bite.

    Yep. We regularly feed some. They come in at night.

    I found an abandoned baby and put it near food and shelter on our back patio.

    Now that it is bigger it is 'going wild.'

    Would not have made it on its own.

    Yep.

    And bring stones and such up when they get food. Like trading or leaving thank-yous.

    You can have too many. Unfortunately.

    And if a bad year for food, they will get desparate.

    KG there are a lot of folks who go coon hunting here or used to.
    maybe not much food for them......

    I think society is incrouching in their territory.
