I hate these little buggers. They chewed a hole in my pack over there at Half Dome. I realize they are just trying to survive but when you have to lock everything including toothpaste in a safe it gets annoying.
I think they should issue airsoft guns to all visitors. This would be similar to the rangers who use beanbags or rubber bullets on bears. Teach them to fear us and they will at least not sit on the edge of my cereal bowl while I am eating dinner.

This photo always makes me think of the racoons that live under the deck at that pizza place in the valley. Anyone else had the experience of dozens of racoons all coming up at once after dark to eat the pizza crusts? We were having some beers with a couple of british pilots and they had never seen racoons before. What a sight.
