OMG my mom found a baby racoon on the side of the road!!!! I know its illegal to keep them.....but......who could resist. besides we'll probably turn him into the DNR once hes had a good nights sleep. I fed him some apples and carrots along with some cat food and i put a large water dish so he could wash his food. Does anyone have any tips on keeping a racoon? He is about the size of a Grey Squirrel maybe a little smaller. about a foot long from noes to tail when he stretches out.
