Bklink: Brooklyn Heights Raccoon

August 26th, 2008 · 2 Comments

link-asterisk.jpgA reader reports: “I’m having dinner this evening al fresco at Tutt Café, and there’s a huge cat crossing the street. But it’s not a cat, it’s clearly a raccoon walking on the west side of Hicks Street, crossing Middagh and heading downhill towards Poplar. I got a good look at it. Stripe across the eyes, stripes on the tail, walking like a raccoon.” A number of Brooklyn raccoon vids are posted too.–Brooklyn Heights Blog

    We have a big old raccoon, very tatty and itchy, on our roofs on Henry Street in Cobble Hill. He likes to hang on the fire escapes late at night, scratching.

    I am so freaked out by the Brooklyn Heights raccoon!! A few weeks ago he was sitting on my deck Willow and Cranberry – doors were closed and he was watching my sweet little doggie eat his treat. I have had nitemares ever since! What can we do??!!!
