Apparently, Cute Husband and I have something in common with the new first family. The LoveNest is constantly under attack by a family of raccoons who enjoy tipping the trash, eating bird seed and washing their cute little critter hands in the bird bath.
And, according to this from The Washington Post, it looks like the White House is having similar issues with everyone's favorite neighborhood varmite....
A small band of masked intruders has broken into the secure White House grounds and has evaded capture by agents of the new Obama administration, officials said today.
The National Park Service is in pursuit of one very large raccoon and several medium-sized raccoons, who have been spotted roaming the grounds around the Executive Mansion and the West Wing...
So far, the raccoons have evaded capture despite the presence of several "live traps," which are essentially cages with a one-way doors to keep the animals inside.
Hopefully, not for release in LoveNest territory.
