Thanksgiving farm visit

While visiting my parents in Rome, NY - I took a trip up to my fathers Christmas tree farm to pick out a tree for Christmas.
Well, the first thing I thought photo worthy was this little raccoon my father trapped

He traps them cause they do damage to the house. Here you can see some chewing on the door way

He's pretty sure this was done by the same critter

I photo graphed these using my wife's camera to compare with earlier shoots that I made with my older camera.

We both get in the back of the truck to release him. I pull up on the cord to open the door. 40% of wild coons will test positive for rabies exposure
