Raccoons look like little bandits for a reason.  However, the picture of this critter hiding in the dishwasher is so cute.

Imagine minding your own business when a trash panda drops from the heavens and into your house.  That's kind of what happened to a family in North Ridgeville, Ohio.  A raccoon about the size of a large house cat, entered the home through the bathroom light fixture.  According to the North Ridgeville Police Department this mischievous little dumpster shark ransacked the kitchen before hiding in the dishwasher.  You can see pictures posted on Facebook by the police department below.

Back in August of 2020 we told you about an Ohio man that called 9-1-1 to report that a raccoon had "got into his garden too many times."  Clearly, that's not what 9-1-1 is for.  But I digress.  You can get that full story by clicking here.

It has been a life long dream of mine to have a raccoon drop into my lap like this.  In fact, I helped rehab a baby raccoon that was abandoned by it's mother a couple years ago.

I miss her.  She was so dang cute.  Once she was ready, I released her into the wild.  Luckily, I get visits from other wild raccoons.  Like this big guy that I found at my front door at 3:30 in the morning.  I tried to share my banana with him, but he wasn't interested.  I get it.  Sharing food during a pandemic is a bad idea.
