Raccoon Kit (Explored July 24, 2020)
Looking for Help
Mom and three kits were caught on camera almost every night in our backyard. Mom and one of her kits stopped showing up. Concerned for the two little ones left behind (and visible on camera) I called the Fish and Wildlife Dept. When I told them mom and one kit had been gone for two weeks, I was told mom was probably NOT coming back, that she was either dead or trapped. After speaking to them we decided to let nature take it's course. Eventually, they would leave on their own.
Well, I am really relieved to say after over 3 weeks mom and the other kit are back with the two left behind. The three little ones were rolling around in the yard as if they were happy to see each other...and all four walking the fence line with mom in the lead! (Now I can sleep better!)
I appreciate your visit and so grateful for your comments/faves!
Stay safe and healthy!!
