You can't EVER trust them - I've known of several cases where people got them as babies and still ended up getting ripped up at some point. The have teeth & claws as effective as cats.

Better to feed the wild ones from a distance to keep them coming around and just put up with the mess they create.

Eggs are the best lure and it's fun to watch them eat them.

I came home from night shift one summer to find my wife sleeping out on the upstairs deck. There was a whole family of coons sniffing around her. Don't know if they were checking to see if she was edible or not.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
