Nature Will Find A Way: Raccoon Vs Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder

June 29, 2018


"Don't go out there, don't go out there!"

This is a short video of a raccoon demonstrating both its problem solving skills and dexterity by casually circumventing a cone designed to keep squirrels out of a bird feeder, then unscrewing the bottom of the feeder with its feet so all the bird seed falls out (and all the while staring at the man filming to let him know who's boss). Hoho, looks like you're gonna have to upgrade to a raccoon-proof bird feeder! "What's a raccoon-proof bird feeder?" There's no such thing, raccoons are too smart. They can build catapults AND parachutes. You either have to give them their own peanut butter and cat food and hope they get full or give up on feeding birds. "I half believe you." I'm half telling the truth.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Allyson S, who agrees it's only a matter of time before the raccoon uprising. This is just testing our defenses.

    Raccoon is what 3-4 times larger than a squirrel? If the cone was 3-4 times larger than would it be raccoon proof as well?

    What an adorable little asshole thief. Those screenshots are just stinkin' cute.

    Missed an opportunity. The title should have been: "Life, Uh, Finds a Way: Raccoon Vs Squirrel-Proof Bird Feeder"

  • Mike Gover

    I read that in his voice.

    Right?? Was NOT expecting it’d go for the extra style points! 😂

    I wonder if the slinky trick would've stymied 'em.

    Or maybe a combo of cone and slinky...

    ...and a few thousand volts?

    The last 30 seconds of that slinky squirrel video is exhilarating!!

    There's literally nothing they can't do. Which is cool to watch in videos, but also somewhat terrifying.

    That trash panda needs to be on American Ninja Warrior.

    I love how he keeps looking at the house.
