garage window--the neighbor had recently moved away and no one else
has moved in--the house is for sale. I thought the raccoon was just
hanging out--maybe it had a nest in there or something--but it was
there for hours and I finally realized it was caught! It had been
climbing up the garage door and it had closed, pinching its finger in
the door! When Keith got home, we went over with a couple
screwdrivers and wedged open the crack and pulled out the damaged paw.
The raccoon sat there a long time--a very long time. It had chewed
and chewed on the door trying to free its paw and may have damaged its
teeth. Eventually it got down and went away--I HOPE IT SURVIVED(S)!!
One of the neighbors was threatening to call animal control, so we are
glad it left when it did. Poor thing!
