We have been naming the raccoons. There's Snow White, the delicate princess who exclusively eats with her hands, Patch, who has missing fur, Nosey who wiggles his nose when he eats, and Blackie. Yes, Blackie is black.The names aren't at all clever. Just a way for us to figure out if any of the dead raccoons we see on the side of the road are ours.
Anyway, one raccoon, Runty, has a personality bigger than all the others put together. He is Runty, Runty, The Socially Awkward Raccoon With No Sense of Personal Space.
It's embarrassing to say, but Runty is obsessed with all the other raccoon's private parts. All the raccoons will be feeding away when Runty comes along and sniffs every posterior until whatever raccoon he's nosing in the anus whirls around and charges. If he isn't sniffing your butt, he has his nose in your undercarriage.
One big bear raccoon had had it with Runty and his sniffing in this tableau. Runty is on the right.
The other thing Runty does is touch.The skunk will live with the opossum, the opossum will lie down with the raccoon, and a little child will lead them, but Runty will tap someone and set off a chain reaction of hostility.
Runty is of course our favorite.
