This is a juvenile Procyon lotor aka the common Raccoon. This little fella came to us after being found during a home renovation and was separated for it’s mother. In the best of cases we like to reunite orphans with their mothers, but given it would be hard to convince clients to allow a baby raccoon back into their home, we nursed this guy up to health and sent him to a wildlife rehabbed were he was later released as an adolescent.
Baby raccoons are often cute and cuddly, but don’t let them deceive you, they have this magical age line. The second they come into adolescence they become people eating machines.
I would like to add: most wild “orphans” are not orphans, so please do not approach these animals. If you suspect an animal is an orphan observe it for a day, most likely the mother is off, away from the young. Wildlife parents aren’t helicopter parents, they have things to do during the day.
