Rachel, yes you are right, but with racoons it's pretty much a given that they will get used to humans. First off, they live in cities (well, lots of them do). They do great in cities, it's warmer, there's lots of food, lots of places to sleep etc etc etc. If humans scare them, they won't leave, they will simply stay out of sight.
It's different with, say, bears, who live in the wild but will come closer and closer to humans if they are fed human food and such, and thus can pose a serious threat.

But yeah, super cute coon! There is a family of em around my moms place, they always walk in her place and go eat the cat food in the kitchen. Weird, but cute as heck.
