Default Juvenile Racoon

I just got him in from a lady who raised him. I need to get him off the milk
(he's way too old for milk..she fed him Ensure only) and then release him.

My rehabber said that he needs to be with other coons or have a big place
where he can get used to the wild. My place is so not suitable!

They are very social animals and live in coon families..that sucks man!
I don't know anybody who would take him. I have to go through my address
book and see.

Here is Redgie:

He's adorable. The other night on my way home again I saw a raccoon, about teenaged or so walking down the street. He nearly caused an accident. He was limping slightly so I considered taking him for a night or so for observation but instead I shooed him away into the grass.

They are quite social I studied a group of them long ago while working a storage field in security. I sat in a truck 3rd shift, there wasn't much for me to do lol Anyway they had a leader of sorts and I found them very interesting.

It would be nice if he could get used to other raccoons but I'm sure if that's not possible he could be okay.

Well maybe it is possible. I found a great home for him where he can get
used to the wild slowly and where he can move out whenever he wants to.
There are also coons living there, so it's perfect .

What a beautiful racoon!

I had no idea they were social creatures, that is interesting to know. I wish him luck on finding himself an adopted racoon family.

He was just picked up! Sweet people who have helped me before with
wildlife. Big place, woods, lake, lots of other coons. But he will live with
the friends first, then be slowly released .

Here he says bye bye and thank you lol:
