"Hi Wildlife Rehabiter I have no argument with what you just said. You spoke to a completely different point than mine - mine was today's perception of urban wild animals and "all the horrendeous risks" associated with them. Making people afraid of animals like raccoons to keep them distanced from them is poor wildlife education. Bad for the animals - and rehabilitation. Good for the state wildlife agencies, tho'! Doesn't matter if you live 30 minutes from your neighborhood or not, urban wild animals exist. Appreciate them for their importance to our ecosystem, respect them for their survival instincts, keep a distance...we agree there. But again this am I had 3 raccoons come panicked and flying thru the door past me from the barn w/in 2' of me. Yes, I have neighbors nearby. We accept and appreciate wildlife, thankfully. Poor pet owners, animal abuse, child abuse, over-flowing animal shelters... are a horrible FACT of life. Also fact is that wild animals are not unfeeling, disease-ridden varmints. I am speaking about perception and reality. As a rehabber we NEED the public to start appreciating these animals again, because rehab is already a dying profession."
