Baby Raccoons

We live in such a beautiful habitat I suspect we may be a drop off site for orphaned baby wildlife via the local Wildlife rehab.

So far this year I have seen a teeny baby porcupine I actually went up to because I thought it was a black kitten, a single baby raccoon, and now three orphaned raccoons that have discovered that the poultry grain in the goose pen is delicious.

We watched them return late afternoon across the goat pasture, through the goat pen and a small hole in the fence as if they belonged there. One even sat in the goose dish.

We could get within a few feet of them.

So we put out an extra dish of food and the dog let them know they aren't really welcome here, so hopefully they'll move downstream as they mature and stay clear of coon hunters.
