But in a lot of states, it is illegal to keep wild animals without a rehabilitation permit. You should have contacted the local DNR, or conservation department before you got the coon and got so attached to it.

Hey it's too late for crying now. Next time you want a animal, check with the local laws first.

I feel sad for you about your loss. I used to have a pet raccoon that I loved dearly. The laws are different in NC-I got her from a friend that used to be a Hwy Patrolman. He had one then got the 2nd one. Don't you know the first was so jealous! Well, the 2nd one(Lucy) was raised by a woman whose health had since gone bad, so she had to give Lucy away. That little rascal wouldn't let my husband give her a bath-she'd almost eat him alive when he tried! I loved it because she was supposed to be HIS pet. I could wash, brush, trim her claws-do anything to/for her and she cooperated with me...Yeah, I loved MY little rascal. Then she grew ...and grew....and grew! I couldn't hold her under the bathtub faucet anymore-she was too heavey, but she loved getting into a tub full of water(with ALL of her water toys) to play and let me bath her. There came a time I couldn't spend the time she needed with her & I wasn't going to be home as much(had 2 jobs + our shop to work in). She had taken a liking to my husband's Uncle Earl, and after we talked it over, decided to give her to him.
He's sort of a "Dr. Dolittle"-loves animals and has them all over the place at his home. When came the next day to escort her to his home I was shocked! Lucy loved to go for rides, but he had driven his perfectly restored '69 Ford Ranger pick-up to take her home in. We'd (with Lucy)NEVER ridden anywhere with him. I could just see her going with this MAN in this beautiful truck...I imagined the worst...seats clawed, dash ripped to shreds, steering wheel gnawed on...you get the picture. Couple these feelings with what my hubby calls "separation anxiety" on my part-I was ready to keep her with me! But after he petted her(both truck doors were open), he set her on the truck seat & let her explore-the little dickens loved it! He'd hidden bits of brownie around in the truck and also her favorite cheese bits crackers. She was pleased to ride with this fella in his shiney truck. After they got home, Earl called us to say she'd done just fine on the way and was downstairs getting used to her new home. He explained that his wife had changed her mind on Lucy's living quarters. She had "re-assigned " Lucy to live in the basement with access made to beneath their huge deck and sunyard. Later on they let her have free access to the yard and land beyond. Earl has a vast amout of property for her to roam on. The last time his wife weighed Lucy, she weighed-in at a whopping 43 pounds. Oh yeah, she's had 2 litter's of kids. I would say she's happy and well adjusted. I hope this makes you feel better.-Susan

Sorry about losing your little coon. The only concern with raising coons is that they are about as trustworthy as a very very high risk breed of dog. What happens in most cases, not all, but most is that they seem like wonderful pets until one day they turn completely wild and become insanely aggressive.

The only problem I ever had with mine was it completely ripped apart a pair of jeans and a shirt...The only problem was that I was wearing them.

You would have gotten rid of it when it got older anyway, they turn and become mean, and get very destructive. It would have ripped your house to shreads. Been there, done that. Just like a mean dog, that was a cute puppy while young. Go get a cat, they are very close looking.

It`s not the Vet`s responsibility to tell you it`s illegal to have a wild animal....it was your responsibility to find out the laws...wild animals belong in the wild
