Baby raccoons

Recently, four baby raccoons were found in a box by the Evelyn’s Wildlife Refuge in Virginia Beach, VA. April and the rescue team, who found the babies, named the little ones Moon, Shadow, Luna, and Star. The babies were not even a week old but were in a perfectly healthy condition.

April brought the little ones home. Whenever April would get a new raccoon, she would make a purring sound as they did. This would make the babies warm up to her quickly. They would rush to the crate whenever she would make that purring sound.

In the beginning, the four little babies just roamed around aimlessly. However, the most adventurous one was Shadow. He would always go off on his own and find a place where he could hide.

April had to look for him most of the time and often found him in the oddest places. Once, she found Shadow resting inside her slippers. He would just climb up onto anything he could.

Shadow was the most uncoordinated but adventurous baby raccoon out of the four. All the four baby raccoons grew up pretty fast and would follow April wherever she would go. As if they knew she was their mom.

Soon they started to jump over each other and play. April loved watching them when they played with one another and learned new things. The baby raccoons were now grown up, and it was time to leave them in the wild.

She started to keep a distance from the raccoons so that they could let go and live their lives freely in the wild. Then, finally, she took the raccoons to the release cage, and as soon as the doors opened, all the four raccoons were happy to be free.
