Raccoon at night, Everything all right

Raccoon at day, run away...

The old Casey adage stands true, but we need an update. What if you find a raccoon hidden in the attic of your garage during the day? That's exactly what happened to Nick over the weekend, and fortunately, his son had the foresight to capture the moment of his dash out of the garage on video:

Crazy morning at the McIlwain household. What do you do when you find a raccoon building a winter nest in the top of the garage? Chase him out with a wiffle ball batt, a hose, and a push broom, of course! Thanks to @mattchartrand39 for the team effort. Video by Ben. Laughing by everyone else. ???????? #raccoonproblems

Maybe Nick needs to hire this guy:

And of course, if you'd listen to Forrest Gump, you'd know that if "raccoons tried to get in our back porch, Mama just chase 'em off with a broom."
