Caption suggestion: Raccoons are more common in the Chicago metro area than any other part of Illinois. In 2003, animal control professionals in the Chicago area responded to more than 65,000 service calls. The majority of calls regarded raccoons, which are resourceful at finding a way into homes.

Caption suggestion: Raccoons, like some other furbearers, produce many young per litter to overcome high mortality, such as caused by automobiles. Despite this, there are more raccoons in Illinois today than there ever have been.
