A Raccoon Takeover in Riverside Park

  Last modified on December 11th, 2020

One of our readers has been seeing an insane number of raccoons recently. On Jennifer’s evening walks between 96th and 125th Streets in Riverside Park, she tells us “they are EVERYWHERE,” and that she saw at least a dozen last night.  These sightings have all taken place in, on or near the wall facing Riverside Drive.

“Last night I heard a sound that was somewhere in between a snort and a snarf and I looked over and yet another!”
