"About four months ago I saved an orphaned male racoon while on a fishing trip. I brought the racoon home, and I fed him a mixture of eggs and milk and he fattened up quite nicely. I also cleaned out his ears which had over forty ticks inside. The racoon was probably only four months old at the time, but is now quite large. Raccoons seem to respond best to eggs and will switch to any food after they grow a bit larger. I have chosen not to keep the racoon inside my home. I have a child and a pregnant wife, both of whom I do not want to receive scratches or bites. I am close to the city but still in a rural area. My racoon lives in a tree in my back yard and every night he slips down for something to eat. I also chose to give him a rabies shot since he visits my back door quite often. Hopefully he will (as he becomes sexually mature) start looking for a female and revert back to the wild. I believe raccoons are wonderful animals but they should be allowed to exist in their own element (which is nature). There is nothing wrong with helping an orphaned animal, but if you don't think that you can deal with an animal like this please do seek out a rehabber to turn the animal over to. These are very instinctive animals as well as curious. They will do a lot of damage to your home and poop everywhere. My hat's off to you if you have one in your home. "
