Rescue Me ID: 14-11-21-00377Raccoon (male)

Wildlife    Age: Young Adult

    I found Ranger and 4 of his siblings after a storm beside my home in Elkhart In. their nest came out of the tree. I left them for about 6 hrs hoping mom would come back she didnt. The other 4 have passed away and Ranger made it. Now I have no experience with raccoons and he is getting larger by the day. He has been handled everyday by my son and I and gets along with my 3 dogs, but I have to move and I am moving into a apartment I have to be out by Dec. 16th and have no where for him. I do not believe if I release him he would survive so please can anyone help I do not know how to go on here and tell all of my sucess with Ranger. ... (Read More)I am so very proud of my Lil Man,not only has he been released but he is thriving. The saddest part of this story is the fact that not only did I almost ruin a wild animal of his freedom and the way he should live, but to me I have also lost a part of me. He was released on February 6th 2015 on land that was close to a stream, plenty of trees, and a hut that he stayed in when I had him.I went 2xs a day the first 2 days to make sure he was warm and feed. On the third day I got a hiss and chatter with his honches up and his head down so I didnt go back for 2 days. On the 3rd day he left his favorite people food alone and didn't touch it after that. My Lil Man grew up in what seemed like just a week. I go back and just sit waiting to see him and on February 20th I saw him. Although he has lost some weight I know he will be ok we both will. I hope the best for him and pray that he does what any Mother wants from their kids Grandbabies. Thank you to each and everyone that called and expressed their concern for him and thank you Rescue Me for allowing me to put Rangers stry out there. (Less)

PIease Read Before Rehabilitating or Rescuing Wildlife in Indiana
    Wildlife rescue work in Indiana can be rewarding if this work matches your IifestyIe. Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation serves an important function in alleviating the suffering of injured or displaced animals, as well as maintaining the balance of ecosystems and protecting human members of the community. There are many reasons an animal may need to be rescued. One reason is that as communities develop and expand, wild animals lose their habitats to new buildings and roads. Once the animals are displaced, there are often conflicts between animals and humans. For instance, animals may nest and reproduce in the crawl space, basement, attic, or chimney of a home. Wild animals may have conflicts with domestic pets. Natural predators such as wild cats may be dangerous. Wild animals may turn over trash or damage property. These conflicts may unfortunately diminish urban and suburban appreciation for wildlife. However, animals are deserving of life, respect, and appropriate care. Disrupting the natural habitat of a given species can have far-reaching consequences to the entire ecosystem.

    Some common types of wildlife that may need rescue or rehabilitation are squirrels, raccoons, and skunks. A squirrel is often considered a nuisance, but many people like squirrels because of their cute appearance and often entertaining behavior. A captive squirrel can be trained nearly as well as dogs. Wild squirrels thrive in many environments and can serve as a necessary part of the food chain for certain predators. Raccoons are very interesting and intelligent creatures that are rejected by some people and loved by others. Skunks are often maligned for the scent they can produce, but skunks only spray as a last resort when extensively provoked. All forms of wildlife are important to the balance of their ecosystems. Wildlife in need of rescue has the best chance of survival with a professional Wildlife Rehabilitator. Baby animals should be carefully picked up with a cloth and placed in a cloth-lined box with a lid that has holes in it and carefully transported to the nearest Wildlife Rehabilitator. Resources exist in most communities for caring for adult wildlife.
