The Kid Should See This

Raccoon Baby Rescue, Rehydration, and Reunion

An Arlington, Virginia family had their chimney and furnace flues capped, accidentally trapping a raccoon mom and her babies in their hidden nest. When the raccoon mom escaped to the basement, the family called The United States Humane Society to help get her and her two babies back out into nature.

But… there were two more babies in the nest, which no one figured out until the next day. In the Humane Society video above, John Griffin and Lori Thiele explain how they rescued the last two babies, rehydrated them, and placed in a “reunion box” for the mother to find.

Did she find them after three days of separation? Check out the remote trail cam footage at the end.
