Tanuki eat cereal

This is tanuki or Japanese raccoon dog. Here they come to eat food left by some people. Both tanuki appears to be couple. While one tanuki is eating other is looking around.

They are scared of people and run away when approached. I left camera nearby and moved away, which made them less afraid.

Wow, you were so lucky to see tanuki! Was this in the town, or were you in the countryside? They're beautiful! What a privilege!

Thank you for comment! It was in town, but small forest nearby. They seem adopted well to life in city.
