Secrets:  Pets or pests? Not having racoons in the UK, it's easy for me to see them as cute and cuddly little characters. The number of pest control businesses in the USA suggest I am probably wrong! A 1970's Japanese cartoon series about Rascal the Racoon resulted in thousands of racoons being imported as pets. Pets soon became pests and now racoons have 'invaded' 44 of the 47 prefectures of Japan. In 1926 President Calvin Coolidge was given a racoon for a Thanksgiving meal but kept it as a pet and called it Rebecca. Not entirely sucessfully. One racoon that did gain Internet support began a precarious climb up a 25 storey office block in Minnesota in 2018. 20 hours later it reached the top where it was captured and successfully released. On my model, two rats, the previous occupants of the dustbin, are fed up with the racoons' antics and have called the police.
