Raccoons are pretty smart they are now becoming citified see Raccoon Nation by David Suzuki (The Nature of Things). http://www.cbc.ca/natureofthings/epi...accoon-nation1
They have begun to show up here in Thunder Bay probably hitching a ride with Monsoon Trucking on it's regular route between Thunder Bay, Ontario & Duluth, Minnesota.
Most animals, bugs or diseases (Like the Spanish Flu) need a free ride be it what ever mode of transportation is available at the time.
There appears to be a superior intelligence in learning curve being developed in the Urban Raccoons brain.
They can learn faster than their country cousin's due to the presentation of a greater number of problems to solve and the passing on of their genes.
