What is it??

To some it may simply appear to be a trash can with a red basket attached to it with some blue rope. To others it is a 'coon catcher - courtesy of my girl.

The trash can lid doesn't close tightly anymore and a couple of times when I threw in another trash bag I noticed that the inside bags had been torn apart. My theory is a raccoon since we have seen them around late at night before.

The girl was excited to hear about the possible raccoon "raid" and decided she'd find a way to trap him (or her). Not sure how it works - but I'm sure my dh will get a bit of a surprise in the morning if he does find a raccoon inside the basket tomorrow as he takes down the trash.

In the past the kids have tried to figure out a rabbit trap...guess they are moving onto bigger and better things...

Did DD put an egg in the basket? Raccoons love eggs!
