Raccoon whisperer James Blackwood is a retired RCMP officer who is now a celebrity on the Internet. He has earned his fame by feeding raccoons and has amassed more than 328,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. His videos have attracted the attention of fans from all over the world. In addition to the many raccoon videos that he has uploaded, Blackwood has also produced several musical videos and vlogs.
Blackwood’s videos have garnered millions of views on YouTube. The video with the most views is a raccoon feeding montage. It was produced on 29 May 2019 and has received over 9.8 million views. Several other raccoon videos have surpassed this milestone.
Blackwood’s first raccoon video was recorded in July 2011. It was a montage of three raccoons, one of which was a red fox. Another was a hot dog bucket, while the other was a chocolate-dipped cookie. This was a logical decision considering that raccoons are omnivores and can be found eating chicken and dogs. Since then, he has continued to record his interactions with raccoons.
On the YouTube front, Blackwood has been uploading videos for more than a year. He has also been recording other videos showing his raccoon-feeding feats. Although most of his feeds are made from kibble and dry dog food, he occasionally feeds raccoons fresh fruit and chicken. A recent episode was filmed from inside the house.
Blackwood’s YouTube channel has received more than a million views since it was launched in September 2007. According to the YouTube stats, his channel has gained a fair amount of subscribers over the past few months. Additionally, the number of raccoon-related YouTube videos has been on the rise. Despite this, he has been able to maintain his reputation as a racoon enthusiast without being branded a prankster. Moreover, he has a dedicated fan club. Many have visited his home to feed the critters. Some even sent him a quilt.
For a while, Blackwood was serving as a school bus driver. Upon retirement, he launched a clothing line. However, his real passion is taking care of raccoons. After his wife died of cancer, he took on the task of feeding the animals. Though he has been doing this for nearly two decades, he still has not managed to stop the critters from visiting him.
Raccoons can be quite cuddly, but they are generally considered dirty creatures. To be on the safe side, ecologists advise against feeding wild animals. If you are planning on doing so, make sure you are well prepared. Thankfully, Blackwood has an arsenal of supplies to keep his raccoons happy.
While the YouTube channel is the star of the show, Blackwood has also created his own website. With more than a thousand YouTube subscribers, it is easy to see why this particular raccoon-related video has been viewed more than a million times. Even better, Blackwood has a phone number. Not only is he available to answer questions, but he’s a friendly guy.
