"Well, I certainly don't know if this is typical play behavior but I have a story to share. Perhaps someone with more 'coon experience can kinda explain it. We live out in a very rural area. I feed all manner of animals that come up looking for a meal - I have a small band of raccoons who have come to me for quite some time. They eat the kibble I put out and that's fine by me. One night I heard this awful commotion and I stepped outside to see what was the cause. It was the "youth gang." They had obviously sated their appetites and they were throwing uneaten kibble at each other, running up and down the deck and railings. I thought it was a fight so I promptly went back into the house. The next night, the same thing. Food fight. After nearly a week of this insanity I figured that if I just stood there where they could see me, the fighting would stop. Uh, no. They all started throwing kibble at me. So I, being an idiot, threw it back instinctively. This "Animal House" scene in the cafeteria only the students have four furry legs, not two. We do this a couple times a week. There is absolutely no aggression being displayed, it's like it's a game and I'm a player. Let me say this, I have haven a caregiver of feral animals for almost all of my 50 years. We moved here to this house 9 years ago and 'coons were always a part of my "family." I know what trust is and I feel they trust me. So, are these little furballs doing illicit critter drugs? Or am I just "one of the gang?" "
