If I could, I would break up the fight between two raccoons going on high up in a tree a couple of blocks from here. I hope they're just killing each other and not killing an innocent squirrel. I eat meat so I can't really criticize them for being horrible, vicious carnivores, but they are.
They're way up there, too. One was backed out as far as it could go in a limb and the other one had it cornered. They fought for a while then backed away.
I didn't know what the noise was. I had gone outside at about 6 AM and heard it. It was an animal in distress, so I went out trying to find it, and saw these two fighting in a tree. I wonder if one is rabid.
