Rehabbing and Projects:
Spirit is a raccoon that came in as an injured juvenile in early spring. She was well under weight at only 5 pounds. She had several wounds from head to tail from obvious fights. After wandering in a person's yard for two weeks she was finally too weak to run and was captured and brought in for help. She was cleaned, her wounds treated, her tail partially amputated and was missing part of her ear. After medical treatment, eight weeks of recuperation where she was warm, safe and well fed, Spirit was released back to the wild. This fall she is still seen at her release site and has her winter layer of fat, a beautiful coat, and is seen socializing with other raccoons at the feeding station. Spirit is a success story. Named for her spirit to survive and be free.
2014 Cage Project. WC volunteers built a soft release cage for raccoons at a new release site this year. A soft release helps cubs transition to their new environment while giving them a safe environment to return to for food and shelter during their first critical weeks of freedom.
Reminder: we have a link (in red) on this page if you need help caring for a wild baby before finding a rehabilitator. Don't feed it milk. Keep them warm and call your local rehabilitator.
