Urban Wildlife Update: Park Slope Raccoons Well Fed
If it's not one thing, it's another. You might have heard about last week's incident involving the biting raccoon in Prospect Park and you probably know that there is a sizable raccoon population in Park Slope and elsewhere in Brooklyn. What we did not know is that, apparently, one of the things they like to eat (in addition to garbage) is very, very fresh sushi. Specifically, we understand, in the words of an email that they like to "feast on fancy fish in backyard ponds." Not having a pond, or a backyard, this is not a problem about which we were previously aware. Now we know, however.
