Raccoon Fatty

My son sent me this photo last night. This is one of the 20 or so raccoons that come by his house. They are the descendents of raccoons we rehabilitated and released there years and years ago.

Those raccoons were brought to us by one of the conservation officers. There were five babies in a paper sack, removed from someone’s chimney. We lost one, but the others thrived. It was one of the most memorable experiences – and apparently left a lasting impression on my son, who absolutely adores raccoons.

He calls this photo “Ridiculous.”

    Remember Weebles? Made by Fisher Price.

    That raccoon definitely has a solid foundation.

    Rehabbers here in NC aren’t allowed to take in raccoons – the incidence of rabies is too great.
