« ASPCA and PAWS Fight Pet Overpopulation | Main | Raccoon Prank »

 

Returning wild animals to their natural habitat is always a very moving experience, but in the case of young Raccoons it can also be quite humorous. They are curious, but very cautious, and they explore with all of their senses. They are especially focused on their tactile sense, and they use their sensitive forepaws to investigate everything within reach.

More than forty orphaned Raccoon kits were raised at PAWS this summer, and the majority of them were released over a one month period that began on September 12. A dozen kits in total were released that night at a large, wooded wetland complex in a King County Natural Area. The Raccoons wasted little time heading for a nearby stream to turn over rocks and look for tasty morsels.
