I thought I’d post the raccoon recording Catherine alluded to below:
(I move my phone around a bit looking for the combatants, but they seem to be nowhere in sight).
I filmed this on March 15th, but our raccoons had been active since mid-February, including in the day time. Later in March it snowed a lot and they’ve been pretty quiet ever since.
Assuming they return to their usual schedule, they’ll start fighting again in mid-summer, and only after sundown.
