Cat Makes Hasty Exit as Raccoons Steal Food

A gaze of raccoons were caught on camera feasting on food left out for stray cats in Weber County, Utah.

Footage captured by Scott Ricks shows a cat take off just as five raccoons descend on Ricks’s porch to dine on food prepared for stray cats.

Ricks told Storyful that he regularly puts out food for the neighborhood cats and makes sure to fill their bowls before settling down at night.

“We noticed that their food bowls literally didn’t have a single crumb in them and their water was so dirty it looked like it was bathed in,” Ricks said. “I’m a nature photographer so I’m naturally curious. My instincts took over!” Credit: Scott Ricks via Storyful
