I’ve come across quite a few raccoons who run and walk freely around the streets of New York from time to time. This had been going on for years, ever since the nineties I remember seeing them.
In fact, they’ve recently been spotted on rooftops and on fire escapes and these creatures in particular were big in size and every time one is near within my presence outdoors, I keep my distance.
When I worked in Rockland County, New York a few years ago at a assisted living facility there would be a family of deer who frequented the outside premises and they wouldn’t bother anyone. One of the deers was cautious and waited for me to pass by before crossing a pathway to continue on in travel with the other flock. I had filmed the scene with my smartphone back then and showed it to my mother when I arrived back home to queens.
I always considered deers to be one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet.
