“The Goonie Coonies”
Andy & Mikey were so small when they were discovered that they still had the umbilical cord attached. We estimated that they were only 2-3 days old and had very little chance of surviving at that young age. Tiny wild babies are not generally able to thrive and require constant care. We had two amazing volunteers, Jeremy and Lia, who made it their mission to provide around-the-clock love and care to these special babies. It’s easy to see why people would want to pick up and try to raise baby raccoons, but that’s the last thing they need. As the raccoons grew they faced challenges, almost dying, and could not be released to live a wild and normal life.
