Raccoons have no manners! They're slobs and the one staring at me didn't seem to really care about the niceties of eating. Bits of dry cat food were soaking up water from where it had been sloshed out of the water bowl. The bag of food I'd laid on a table was now torn open and about 10 pounds of cat chow was strewn across the floor.

This particular raccoon had come in through the pet door into the garage and was happily eating leftovers from my cat Spike's dinner bowl. He obviously had no fear of me, because he kept eating as I walked over to the work bench. Even though he appeared to half tamed, I was trying to keep a little distance between me and the raccoon.

Spike has a bed in the garage, in the house and on the deck. Whenever and wherever the mood strikes him to take a nap, he's not very far from a comfortable pillow. He has become adjusted to seeing raccoons and possums enter his garage at all hours of the night. Tonight he was sleeping on the bed that used to be my work bench before he took it over. He was now peering over the side of the cardboard box that was his bed, at the raccoon that was making a mess of his eating area.

I may have to try trapping the animal, but that didn't work out very well last year. I used a gage-like trap that is supposed to close the entry way into the cage when the animal tries to eat the canned cat food in the back of the cage. It's very humane. Of the five raccoons we had last year, none were caught. I did catch Spike...twice. I've never accused him of being smart!

If you have a 'possum get into your house, the best thing to do is to put a can of cat food just outside the door and let the animal go to the food. Then slam the door shut! They may scare you by hissing and snarling, but that's just their defensive mechanism. It's sort of scary when they bare their fifty teeth, but more than likely if you back away, they'll never hurt you. One good thing about confrontations with a 'possum is that they hardly ever get rabies.

I really hope they'll leave soon. Spike and I would like to get our garage back.

Beaver is primarily a nocturnal and semi-aquatic rodent. It belongs to the genus Castor and is presently represented by two species commonly known as the North American Beaver and the European Beaver. They are known for building dams, canals and lodges. They are the second largest rodents known all over the world. They live in colonies and make dams which are deep in water and protect them from the predators. The population of the North American beaver has declined rapidly because of excessive hunting. They are killed for fur and the glands are used as a source of medicine and perfumes. They are known for their natural trait of making dams in the ponds in which they live. They have very sharp and powerful front teeth which are used for cutting trees for building their homes as well as for feeding. They are known for their alarm signals. When frightened the beaver dives rapidly and slaps water with its broad tail. This sound is audible from large distances both above and below water. This behaviour acts as a warning signal for other beaver present inside water. Once warned by the alarm call the other beavers dive into water and do not reemerge for some time. They walk slowly on land but are effective swimmers and can remain under water for about 15 minutes.

Both the species are not genetically compatible. North American beavers have 40 chromosomes while the European beavers possess 48 chromosomes. North American beavers are also known as Canadian beavers. They feed on water lily. Beavers are common hosts of Giardia lamblia which causes giardiasis. The beaver testicles and castoreum, a bitter secretion present in the castor glands of male or female beaver is used commercially for making medicine. Castoreum is also used in perfume preparation. They are national animals of Canada. They have entered the category of endangered because of habitat destruction and mass killing.

When we think about the dangerous animals faced by our pioneer ancestors, what comes to mind? Probably we would imagine wolves, bears, panthers, and poisonous reptiles. Few would consider the lowly squirrel! But for the early Ohio settlers, the squirrel was the cause of famine and suffering.

As pioneers moved into the Valley of the Paint in southern Ohio in the early 1800s, they immediately began to radically change the area's landscape. Cabins had to be built, fireplaces stoked, and fields cleared for planting. As a result, the great oak, beech, chestnut, and black walnut trees were cut down far and wide. Trees not needed for building were rolled to the vast fires and destroyed.

These trees, especially the nut-bearing ones, were the habitat and food source for the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of squirrels in the area. In short order, the squirrels were desperate for food. They turned to the easiest and most abundant food source-the pioneers' crops.

The harsh winter of 1807-08 nearly eliminated squirrels as a species in the Valley, and the levy was allowed to expire. The pioneers continued to subdue the wilderness and open the land to agriculture. The days of the great forests blanketing Appalachian Ohio were coming to an end. In their place now stood row upon row of tall corn plants and waving wheat. Civilization was on the march.

Although most people would name wolves or rattlesnakes as the worst danger to early Ohio pioneers, it was the squirrel that caused the most suffering. Man's effect on the rodents' food source led to crop loss and famine. The county act that required the killing of the squirrels, along with the settlers' sharing with their neighbors in need, helped the new community make it through the long, cold winter to come.
