They are also very tough(not to eat). They survive the winters near our house at 6,700 feet elevation. I guess they eat squirrels, voles, bugs, maybe some plant life? Every year there is a new batch of little ones. Only predators are coyotes and cars. One of my neighbors used to feed them inside her house until one bit her husband. $1,500 for rabies shots. He was "self insured". End of raccoons.
