While feeding a few local raccoons, an Orlando man learned a valuable lesson: Raccoons will bite your dumb ass. 

In a video posted to YouTube, Braddock Baskett spots a gang of Orlando raccoons (or, a "gaze" of raccoons) in a back parking lot. "I've never seen this many raccoons," he says, while holding a little snack in his outreached hand.



Moments later, a raccoon who seems determined to educate Baskett on the noble savagery of nature, bites his finger. 

It's a tough lesson. However, Baskett now knows that raccoons will indeed bite your dumb ass.
