Do raccoons make good pets? Those raccoons, they sure are cute and cuddly. They are so adorable, especially when they are small. Who couldn't love a raccoon and think it would make the perfect pet? The truth is that you shouldn't think this.
They may look incredibly cute, but the truth is that raccoons can be quite dangerous to you, your family and your pets. First of all keep in mind that these are wild animals. No matter how safe a wild animal may look or act, they are still wild, and at times wild animals will lash out just out of pure instinct to do so. It may be a totally sweet animal one minute and then trying to claw or bite you in the face in the next. This makes them a huge problem.
In addition, if you have pets you never really know how they may interact with your cat or dog. They may see your pet as a threat to them and attack them. This can get your pet injured or killed.
Even if you take out that wild animal part of this, raccoons can still be quite dangerous. These animals carry a lot of different diseases and parasites. Among them is rabies, which can be incredibly dangerous to you and your family. If you were to get bit by a raccoon that has rabies and were not treated within a day you can become seriously ill and die. The agony from that death is excruciating.
In addition, raccoons carry all kinds of parasites that are found in their waste. You do not even have to touch it. You can actually breathe in the parasites and become very sick from them. The raccoon ringworm, for example, attacks your central nervous system, and can cause severe impairment to your brain, spinal cord, nerve endings, and other systems that are controlled by your central nervous system. This can leave you incapacitated permanently and can even lead to death.
Yes, they look like cuddly animals that would seem to make the perfect pet, and movies love to paint the raccoon as such a cute little mischievous animal, but these are very dangerous animals that you need to be careful with. You simply cannot afford to risk the health of your family and your pets by brining one of these animals in as a pet. Even if they are caged you can still breathe in one of the parasites and become sick. This just isn't worth it.
