Zorro's companion,what kind of cruel state do u live in and who the hel- is that women and who the hel- do they think they r playing god with a loving soul. God I am sooooooooooooooo pist off I cant image having to do that. I cant, love is love whether u look like another raccoon or not. God how can they do that, but they did didnt they. God i am sooooo sorry for your loss, it was so wrong, i mean where is the logic in that,they took a perfectlly happy critter put him/her someplace completely foreign to them. Probably scared the heck out of the little guy, and destroyed him. What cruelty, I hope there is a hell for people like that. To zorro's companion, my name is nakoosa, 16083397824, i would love to know what u learned from this and who to fight, but give me a few days, my rocky died, heart attack, the vet put him way passed 12 years old, wow,he would of been a perfect advocate for this he hated going outside really, the cold was like criptonite to him, i am very sad rite now, and ownly hearing something like what happen to zorro i am greatful he died at home with me holding him, i want to share with you all the card my husband brought home from work that day, i feel its perfect for all who love all creatures and treat them with the same respect we treat ourself, and dont treat them like we are superior somehow,some humans r sooooo cruel. Why? That is what we ask. The truth is, we may never know for sure why. But we do know that there is no single "should have done" or "could have done" or "did or didnt do" that would of changed that why. All that love could do was done. With deepest sympathy me, rocky was very special to us, I think that said it all to all of us who has lost a great companion, mary

Hi everyone, if you are looking for a baby raccoon, you can wait until spring when they are being born. In the wild there are always orphans out there due to cars hitting ma or stupid humans doing cruel things. Or try a breeder, I know of keystone exotics out of pennsylvania, he is licensed and will only sell to people who have one. If your state allows them as pets, look into a captive wildlife license. It was 50 bucks in my state, Wisconsin, and is good for 1 year, 2 critters from a licenced breeder. Hope this helps, hey find out who has that poor raccoon willie on u tube. He's so mean to him, all he wanted was to live inside, that guy should give him up if he did not want willie to live with him. nakoosa

Temperament issues, girls verses boys in raccoons, you hit the nail on the head. This is one person's opinion, I have had boys and girls, girls are moodier especially around breeding time. Boys seem a little more able to adjust to new things and calmer. nakoosa

Ok, I have read just about enough about this release crap with raccoons. I have said it before and I am gonna say it again. You do not have to be another raccoon to show and feel love to each other, and you do not have to be another raccoon to feed a baby a bottle. I mean if your raccoon family member feels safe and loved and maturnally bonded to you and you have the facilities to handle them and the patience, but if you did not have those things your raccoon would not already feel safe. Let them stay, keep them, we humans are so stupid some times, we as humans know there are people out there who want to kill raccoons, there are hunters out there, trappers, people who still use poisons etc,. I believe the raccoons do not know this. It's our responsibility to help them, by keeping them safe from that if possible. Anyone that has cared for these creatures know how loving a creature they are, and the women who said they are a handful is right. You will get bit, they will go in every cabinet, but they will also follow you everywhere. They will give you hugs, they will hang out on the couch with you and they will even sleep with you. My point is clear, if they love you as much as you love them and they are content with you, then let them stay with you. There are things out there that will hurt them that they know nothing about and why risk that for someone you love. No-one ever said it is law that raccoons belong in the wild. It is my opinion they belong where they are loved, content and safe. nakoosa

Hello out there, Nakoosa's companion here. To Merlin's companion, I am so sorry for your loss. It never, never gets any easier. If it did we wouldn't be kind humans. First of all I love that name, Merlin, perfect for a racoon. Anyone that has one for a companion knows they do things that are pretty tricky. But most of all, ever since Meeka and I met, racoons have tough me how kind and loving they are. I have said it before, most humans are not as kind as racoons. I found Meeka as a baby, had her for 3 years, and lost her in our house fire, awful. Two weeks later a sick older male showed up, that was 3 years ago. Merlin will find another one that is in need of you help and love, because you are right, they have a huge soul that will live forever. NAKOOSA

I am thinking of getting a raccoon, I raised skunks for years and have always wanted a raccoon. Does anyone know if there is a difference in the tempermant of the male and female racoons? Is one calmer than the other and more friendly?

Does any one know if it is illegal to have raccoons as pets in the state of new york? I love raccoons, they are cuddly, loving, and they could keep some one on their feet.
