I’ll admit, I’ve never heard of somebody who actually enjoys a raccoon’s presence.
I mean c’mon, all they do is rummage around through your trash and wreak havoc on your front deck. Not to mention they can be mean as hell too.
However, there may be a small portion of people on this planet who actually are lovers of these pesky creatures, and here’s one example. Yeah, to each their own, I guess…
Let me introduce you to James Blackwood, who calls himself the “Raccoon Whisperer,” and has his own YouTube channel full of videos of himself hand feeding raccoons.
But it seems like there’s a ton of people who enjoy his raccoon antics, as he’s garnered more than 500,000 YouTube subscribers on his channel.
This one dates all the way back to November 3rd, 2020.
I’ll cut my guy some slack here. The video was taken right in the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic, and there were still some serious restrictions at the time so there was nothing better to do.
So what did he do to pass the time?
Just hand fed a whopping 25 wild raccoons raw hot dogs. He looks like he’s having the time of his life as raccoons climb all over him, trying to get themselves a hot dog.
Everybody has their own hobbies and I’m normally the last to judge, but I can’t say I understand this one. This looks like a personal Hell.
I guess the raccoons are happy at least.
