What a sad story. I doubt the wildlife rescue shelter bothered to even try and keep such young raccoons alive. It is a shame that the babies could not be relocated with their mother.

And for those of us who would rather have a colonoscopy than spend the day driving around between brick and mortar stores to buy stuff, Goodshop is a nice fundraising option as well.

Raccoon's like climbing on things do they? :)

A charming story, but no surprise here.

If you can't beat 'em, feed 'em!!!

I'd want one but then again, I'm not too familiar with their habits and ways of life..

They are very dexterous, both mentally and physically. There is not much that a determined (or a bored) raccoon cannot open. You could easily leave for work in the morning and return home at the end of your work day to find your kitchen in shambles, unless you were very, very, very good at raccoon proofing everything. Even then, your raccoon would still probably surprise you.

On top of that, raccoons are even MORE active at night. Imagine trying to sleep with a raccoon opening doors, opening closets, pulling things out of your cupboards and knocking things off of your shelves all night long.

Additionally, smart as they are, raccoons are generally not potty-trainable. Raccoons like to climb up onto things and then poop. An indoor raccoon would be wormed (I would hope) to prevent the raccoon from pooping out roundworm eggs that can be fatal to humans if accidentally ingested, but I STILL would not want an indoor raccoon climbing the bookshelves in our home every time nature calls.

I love raccoons, but I firmly believe that they belong outside.

With the spring season now in full swing, homeowners have to contend with pesky critters on their property and in their homes.

Hey!!! One person's "pesky critter" is another person's "special little woodland friend"!!!

Yes... and apparently also the humility to make me publicly admit it.

Yes it is. And I've now held a wild hummingbird. They weigh next to nothing and seem so extremely fragile.

Awesome!!!

How is your friend feeding the convalescing bird? Eye dropper?

Many species of birds may be considered partly or exclusively predatory. However, in ornithology, the term "bird of prey" applies only to birds of the families listed below. Taken literally, the term "bird of prey" has a wide meaning that includes many birds that hunt and feed on animals and also birds that eat very small insects.[2] In ornithology, the definition for "bird of prey" has a narrower meaning: birds that have very good eyesight for finding food, strong feet for holding food, and a strong curved beak for tearing flesh.[3] Most birds of prey also have strong curved talons for catching or killing prey.[3][4] An example of this difference in definition, the narrower definition excludes storks and gulls, which can eat quite large fish, partly because these birds catch and kill prey entirely with their beaks,[2] and similarly bird-eating skuas, fish-eating penguins, and vertebrate-eating kookaburras are excluded. Birds of prey generally prey on vertebrates, which are usually quite large relative to the size of the bird.[2] Most also eat carrion, at least occasionally, and vultures and condors eat carrion as their main food source.[3] Many raptor species are considered apex predators.

Vic, hummingbirds eat flower nectar. They are definitely NOT raptors!
