I found a baby racoon. Can I keep it?
No. It is illegal in The State of Massachusetts to keep or try to raise a wild animal without a license from the state. You will put your self in danger as well as the animal. It is not all fun and games raising a baby animal. They need certain things to survive and thrive as they grow. Only licensed rehabilitators know how to do this properly. If you have found a baby wild animal please do not touch it. Call Animal Control right away.
