"My story is much the same as everyone else's here. When I was a child my father found a baby raccoon whose family had been killed during land clearing for construction. Rocky became a part of our family. He wasn't caged, but was allowed the run of our house. He loved to slide around the inside of our bathtub on his back during playtime. When he was younger he was bottle fed, but as he got older he loved Honey Smacks as a treat. When he started getting older he wanted to be outside more and more so we put in a pet door so he could go in and out as he pleased. As he started reaching sexual maturity he got very moody and you could only handle him when HE wanted to be handled. One day he came in the house and my 6-year-old sister's ankle was the first thing he saw and he attacked her and injured her VERY badly. At this point he was only coming in the house every few days, so my parents closed up the entrance and he was no longer allowed in the house. He was a wonderful pet and we loved him, but he was a wild animal. You can tame them and give them rabies shots, and everything else, but they aren't meant to be kept in captivity."
