The common raccoon (Procyon lotor) is one of the most successful mammals in North America. Its distribution has substantially increased in the past few decades, and it thrives in human-dominated landscapes. Concomitantly, it has expanded its range as a non-native species in Europe, and is becoming numerous in Austria. In this presentation, Prof. Zeveloffreviews the raccoon's natural history, and the challenges it poses for wildlife management and society. Public Lecture by our Fulbright Professor - Prof. Sam Zeveloff, Weber State University, Utah. Date: 16th of January, 2015.
