Raccoon feces?


I just noticed the following feces on our front porch steps over the past couple of days - see attached photos. Each is about 2" wide.

We had a history of an animal farm at our house but most recently, had a raccoon issue we had to deal with last summer (after we bought our home - lovely surprise ordeal that was).

Thanks.

Thanks. I didn't smell it but it does seem about right size and shape for a raccoon.

Be careful. Trapped raccoons have to be done away with by trappers in this state because their feces can carry microorganisms that can make people very sick---especially kids and older folk.
