Noticing More Raccoon Lately?

Seems its about this time of year that the canine distemper hits the raccoon population, so be aware that a raccoon siting during the day might mean a sick (dangerous) animal.  

As of this past weekend, I encountered at least one carcass on the trails and spotted two more live raccoon "wandering" on a paved trail during daylight hours. 

Keep your distance and keep your dogs clear of them too, as an unvaccinated dog is susceptible to this deadly disease.
