Typical neighbourhood raccoon out for its nightly stroll, was cornered on the fence by my dog a little pekingese, it didn't know it could escape by going either way on the fence or down the other side. Anyhow it stayed glued to the fence until after i had my fill of photos and still wouldn't leave until i picked up my dog :)
