Raccoon spotted while snowshoeing!

 Here we are, calmly admiring the city lights during our Thursday night snowshoeing and English conversation outing.

 Suddenly, we spot a strange creature in the parking lot. General chaos ensues. What is this creature?

A raccoon, aka un raton laveur!! Oh joy!  I am endlessly fascinated by the prospect of newcomers seeing their first raccoon, and this is why raccoon spottings regularly make headlines in this blog. When asked, one participant hailing from a warmer climate commented that he expected it to look a little more like a crocodile (you had to be there...) Join us next week for a new adventure - you never know what you'll see or hear on Mont-Royal!!
