Squirrels and rats and racoons, Oh My! There seem to be a growing population of bad actors of the furry kind here in the Berkeley Marina.

The raccoons are quite bold. They will accost anybody carrying food and have no qualms about boarding a boat. These guys have grown up with no fear of humans.

The first night the boat was here, we were not on it and there was some food left on the counter. We had removed our port light screens to allow more air. Some bleedin varmits came in and helped themselves to cookies and chips. They did not bother to clean up when they left. Rock salt fired from a wrist rocket might leave a lasting impression.
