Another day of doom for the animal kingdom. We picked up another adult raccoon hanging out next to someones house. She was pretty neurologic and had some injuries. Turns out the injuries were bite wounds. Coupled with the neurologic symptoms, rabies was most likely.
Enter Laurie and Lisa. They drive by a dead beaver in the road....so they thought. Upon going back to check it, it was alive....attempting to drag itself onto the sidewalk with a broken back.
So while Laurie and Lisa take the coon and the beaver to get them euthanized, I get a call for a raccoon stuck in a trap. Turns out to be a leg hold trap and it was horrific! The animal rescue league responded for him. Their vet would take care of him so they could document it all in the off chance the asshole that put the trap out there can be found. As soon as I get the pics I'll post his story here ...it's a lesson in cruel and inhumane trapping everyone should be aware of.
