Photo: Foraging Raccoon Killarney Provincial Park Ontario Canada

A cute Raccoon forages and scratches through the dry leaves of the forest floor near George Lake in beautiful Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario in Canada.

Killarney Provincial Park in the Canadian Province of Ontario is located on Lake Huron's Georgian Bay and is a 'wilderness park', which means that it has mainly been left as natural as possible.

The park was established due, primarily, to the efforts of the artist A.Y.Jackson, who did not want to see the area destroyed by logging. By 1964 with the support of the rest of the Group of Seven, 10,000 square kilometers of the Georgian Bay shore was declared a wild reserve.

Now the park is a refuge for over a hundred breeds of birds, such as loons, blue herons, osprey and hawks. The larger forms of wildlife include black bears, moose and deer, and the smaller animals such as the bobcat, wolf, fox, marten, ferret, beaver and 'the bandit' raccoon. ... continue below the picture...

... So called because the facial markings of the raccoon resembles a bandit's mask,and gives them a mischievous look.

The Latin name for the common raccoon is Procyon lotor and they are the largest of the Procyonidae family, a Carnivora group of the 'New World' and are usually omnivorous, enjoying plants and animals alike. The raccoon is an interesting animal that will forage for food in the dry leaves along the shores of George Lake in Ontario, Canada or can knock over a suburban garbage can and search for left-over tidbits.
