As much as Eve loves Taz, she knows that not all raccoons are as docile and gentle, and would hate people to think they make good pets all the time. "Raccoons are not meant to be pets." So I join with Eve in urging everyone to call a rehabber if they find a baby raccoon. As Eve says, "it takes many hours too of devotion to help them be part of a family as Taz is- cageless and content."
I would add that, whenever
possible, a raccoon belongs in the wild but some raccoons (like Taz) simply
cannot be returned to the wild. Still, it takes a tremendous amount of
work, patience and love on the part of the human companion sharing his
or her house with a raccoon. If you have a raccoon that cannot be returned
to the wild, make sure you know what you are in for before you decide to
take it into your home. If you intend to keep it in a cage, find another
home for it.
