My neighbors are pissing me off!!!!!!!!!!!!

They aren't your typical neighbors, they don't make noise, they aren't mean, in fact they are really very nice. Hell, they are even on the welcome wagon and brought us dinner after we had the baby. But..it's worse! They feed the f'n racoons! The few days that they are out of town the racoons roam our neighborhood for food. DH went outside to shut his truck and I guess he forgot to shut the garage door. Well, I just went outside where our washer and dryer are and as I turn the corner, the biggest racoon I have ever seen in my life is standing, or sitting, whatever the do is sitting there staring at me hissing. So I run inside, it didn't follow me but, hell! DH started to bang on the door and I saw it through the window run away. They were trying to get into our dogs food (it's in a container that was a little bit open) but really, our neighbors need to stop feeding them!!!!!! One time they went out of town and we were going to feed their dogs. When DH went over to se where the food was, they showed him where their dogs food was, where the neighbor hood cats food was and where the racoons food was at. Okay..end rant.

oh my that is dangerous for the whole neighborhood since the racoon is hissing and stuff at you.  Can you contact your local ASPCA or something to get a live trap to catch and release further away from where you live?

ya i would call animal control. racoons are one of the top animals to carry rabies! dont forget about that! what if someones child was bitten, usauly the symptoms of rabies dont show up till a month later, then its too late. but if theyre in ur garage, imagine where they will try to get too in your home! O.O Eeeeeeeek !

Yeah, I think I'm going to call animal control tomorrow. I don't want them to even try and get in our house! And there are dogs all around our neighborhood, I don't want any of them to get bit either.

That would freak me out! Our neighbors have a huge deer feeder. At any time of the day there are atleast 20 deer in their yard. So, every time we drive down our road (private drive we share with them) we have to stop because the deer run out in front of us. I swear they are going to run into the side of my car.

Have you spoken to the neighbors about the problem?

Yes, I would call animal control, but you should also nicely, say something to them.

Everyone in the neighborhood has, incuding DH. When he went over there when they asked us to feed the animals when they were gone he mentioned to them that wasn't safe. They just shrugged it off. I'm not even kidding when I say, she walked a BABY RACOON...ON A LEASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We can talk until we're blue in the face, but they won't do anything about it.

Awww!  We feed our birds behind our apartment all the time.  We love our little family of blue jays that visit us.  We just got a hummingbird feeder, and we have a couple of hummingbirds that visit us every day.  (The kids love that)

Racoons.......... Not a fan!! LOL!!!
