Raccoons are attracted to trash is that they can eat just about anything. As omnivores, they’ll look for fruit, eggs, vegetables, meats, nuts, bugs, or just about anything else they can get their paws on.

Raccoons do not go into hibernation during the winter.

Capable of a wide variety of vocalizations, raccoons use sound as a primary communication channel between individuals. While their noises include hisses, chatters, grunts and squeaks, they are also capable of purring in a manner described as similar to that of a housecat.
