Raccoon Scares Bejesus Out of Man Decorating Trees for Christmas

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Ontario man decorating trees in his yard for Christmas shared video of an unwanted helper -- a curious and chubby raccoon -- taking over his ladder.
The video shows the rotund raccoon approach and begin to climb the ladder while the man stands at the top decorating a tree in his Mississauga yard.
The man attempts to shoo away the raccoon with commands of `no,` and `down,` but the curious critter continues to climb.
The man eventually gives up and surrenders the ladder to the raccoon."
You may question the masculinity of a man who decorates trees in his yard for Christmas, but if a raccoon climbed a ladder while I was on top, I would jump off. I`d rather suffer a broken leg than risk getting mauled by a raccoon.
I love animals, but raccoons are the meanest creatures on the face of the Earth, I give them a wide berth.
The man wisely surrendered the ladder to the raccoon; if a raccoon entered my house I would surrender my home to it.
