At the release site.

OK....finally! The release site! It's perfect for them!
The very secluded path begins near the house.......and winds all through the woods. (That was fun lugging it all in there!)
It's like fern gully!
Into a clearing and there it is.
All set up and decorated a la raccoon.
Then it's time to add the coonies! Here they are.....The Attituds and NCIS all packed up and ready to go. (and not very happy about it either!)
Once my gang and Lauries are all loaded into the pen the crates are opened and the fun begins!
New territory and new surroundings makes for a lot of fun.....and that means no major squabbles among strangers! Even if there were problems, the cage is plenty big enough for them to avoid each other and plenty of den boxes to separate into.

They're all doing great out there and we are aiming for Wednesday for a possible permitting. They are going to love it out there!


  1. Exciting! I need a review, these are all boys right. Are you and Laurie planning to release some gals at this release site too?

  2. It looks like raccoon heaven. Bless you for all you do for these little guys- they look really happy with their new surroundings :)

  3. Thanks Kim....they are pretty happy with it, and will be so much more so in about a week when the sky is the limit! As sad as it is to say goodbye, it's so much fun to watch them play and explore when they are released. :)

    8 of my 10 were boys and I know there was at least 1 girl out of Laurie's mostly boys but a small female representation thrown in the mix! LOL

  4. Yay!!! The infamous "release site" finally!! LOL
    Kim's right, it does look like raccoon heaven. Do they tend to stick together...the siblings once released?
