Yellow Jackets

yellow jacket

For several months Zoo animals (and human staff) have made efforts to avoid the stings of meat eating yellow jackets. Raccoon Crash to ignored them. He gathers his ground raw meat, veggies and crunchy dry cat food only with his right front paw that – thumb and all – looks like and works like a human hand.   With the onset of rain, and winter weather in the offing, the yellow jackets seem to have pretty much dispersed. Only the queen will survive and she’ll choose a new site to start another colony in spring.
