The “don’t feed the wildlife” signs exist for a reason, and this is it.

A Florida man uploaded this video of a raccoon feeding gone wrong. According the the uploader he “strolled up on this large raccoon family and a chill cat” and decided to offer them some food. After holding out a treat one of the raccoons cautiously approached him, and that’s where the lesson began.

Instead of taking the treat the raccoon took a chunk out of the man’s finger. This is what happens when you fail to respect wild animals.

    Funny how a do-gooder never thinks anything will go badly, until it does. From save all the raccoon’s to kill them all in the matter of seconds. LOL!

    The Coon’s ears went back well before it reached his hand. He had plenty of time to raise his hand and back away. C’mon, Dude, a little common sense goes a long way. My wife and I grew up around wildlife and both of us have feed Raccoon, and you have to learn how to read them and react to the situation.
