    Raccoons are illegal as pets in Cook County (I live there too) and any vet that is found treating an illegal pet can have their license taken away. You probably can have one if you live outside of Cook County, but please double check the laws. If animal control finds out about an illegal pet, it will probably be euthanized and biopsied for rabies testing.

    I live in Canada & it is illegal to own a wild animal. ANY wild animal. However, a couple of stupid people saw 2 tiny baby raccoons in the back seat of an old car at an auction & thought the mother wasn't coming back and stole the babies. 100% sure she was hiding until everyone left. They should have at least waited 24 hours & checked from a distance if she returned. However, there are idiots born every second.

    Anyway, one of the kits came to me after the one person.could no longer have her because they lived in a municipality & I was on a farm. I loved this little raccoon to destruction. She was never in the house but locked in the barn unless I was there until ?5-6 months old. Then she had free rein. She lived on top of the hay bales & even though the house was not that far away, she never came there. I had her over the her 1st winter & would try & play with her everyday. We were very close. But late that next spring she disappeared. I was sick. I was hoping to start working on releasing her in a huge provincial park in the fall. She was beautiful whe she left, probably 40 pounds. She came back a month later, looked TERRIBLE & had probably lost half her weight. I think she had found a mate because she then made a "nest" so to speak in our Quonset & really didn't want much to do with anyone. I had 2 young Grandaughters & we were constantly at the barn as we had horses etc. I had to release her to a zoo. It broke my heart.

    PLEASE for the animals sake DO NOT GET a pet raccoon . They are adorable for about 8 months but then they become what nature intended them to be. Mine was not mean and nasty but might have become so if she had young.

    Maybe he was looking for a replacement companion. Raccoons like other raccoons & will seek out buddies etc, which he didn't have a need to go out of his way to do before because he always had his bub

I had a lil raccoon, and she is the sweetest thing on earth, her mom was shot and I took her in and raised her, then my husband built her a big house outside so she could play and have her own place when she no longer wanted to stay in the house. One day three days ago, I was cleaning her outside house and did not lock the back door, when I went out to check on her like always, she had got out the door and has not returned home. My question is will she come home and will she be ok out there? She is 15 months old. Please give me some good news. I have cried so much my eyes are swollen:(

    I would think that your raccoon will be just fine on its own, they are wild by nature. I'm sure you are sad though, I'm so sorry :( Keep an eye out for her because she may turn up, especially because she feels comfortable in the home she grew up in.
  • mary hicks - 2013-12-28
    she may come back and may not but she should be ok.

    Ours has went outside stayed few days, but always ends up coming home . Keep cage open with feed. She will return .
  • ruthie - 2019-10-10
    Oh no :( I am so sorry! Did she come back home? I was wondering if you had coyotes in the area, they are becoming more urban & people often have no odea they're prowling their neighborhood at night... Maybe she was mating. At her age, and it being November (?) when you wrote this.

I have a 14 year old female raccoon who is definitely part of the family. She has never been caged and liv s very well with our small dog and cat. Litter trained and does not go outside as I worry about her contracting disease. She has never been sick.
That being said though she has low quite a bit of wait this summer. She is still eating well and is healthy on her wise from what I can see.
Any thoughts on the weight loss? Is it due to old age?
