Summary
They aren't good pets, but also, they aren't total pests. Let's take a day to celebrate these adorable rascals.

International Raccoon Appreciation Day is celebrated on October 1st.

This appreciation day was started in 2002 by a young girl in California, in an effort to highlight the important part raccoons play in local ecosystems, as they are generally misunderstood and are considered pests.
