Something Wicked This Way... Waddles

Mike and I do something that I'm guessing we probably shouldn't - we toss food into the tree-filled area behind the condo.  Old apples that have gotten too mealy, stale crackers, etc.  We like to think that we are feeding the already overweight squirrels, but I had a feeling that they weren't the only mammals out there.

And then I saw this monstrosity.

I am 95% sure that this raccoon has rabies.  This is based on the fact that I know nothing about rabies.  But why is it walking like that?  His back is arched and weird, and if you could have seen him running, you would have thought that something was a little... off.

Right, so Kelly and I chased him into the woods and then went to Dairy Queen.  As you do.  This is what I found when I came home.

He's got the laser eyes!

ADDENDUM: I'm now pretty sure that the thing was pregnant.  CHECK BACK FOR PROOF.

Umm, I think that is the way they walk.

No, I'm pretty sure that it was rabies-infested. SO MUCH RABIES.
