RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: Water for Raccoons


A super duper cute video making the rounds lately, although almost a month old, is of a baby raccoon making use of a water bowl set out to make sure a nearby raccoon family could stay healthy during the late summer.  I kind of frown on this type of thing as it makes the wild animals dependent on the help of people.  I’m sure they would have found a source of water on their own without human intervention.  But, hey, if we left them to their own devices we wouldn’t get cute raccoon videos, so I guess it all works out.

In other raccoon news, the Raccoon River was overflowing late this week due to a lot of rain.  I’m just happy to hear there’s a Raccoon River.  I’d love to see a raccoon along it.
