Should I feed a baby raccoon I found? Most of us see a wild baby animal and our instinct is to do what we can to help it. Whether it is a baby bird with a hurt wing or a stray cat that looks like it has not eaten in a day or two, we all feel compelled to do what we can to try to help these animals to survive.
The real quandary comes when we come across an animal that could be potentially hazardous to us. This is true of the raccoon. The baby raccoon looks so adorable, and so there is a natural instinct to want to do something to try to help it. The problem is that you have to ask yourself if this is a safe course of action. Raccoons carry a large number of parasites and diseases, and you certainly do not want this on you. But it is still so darn cute!
You want to do something so you decide that maybe the best course of action is to feed the animal. Then you ask yourself if this is really a good idea. It is such a tough call on what to do.
No one can tell you that your actions or right or wrong. This is a decision you have to make for yourself. You love animals and you want to help this one. That is noble. If you decide that feeding it is what you want to do then the best thing you can give it is milk. Raccoons are mammals which mean that they drink mild when they are young. If possible try to get some form of unpasteurized form of milk for them. This is the safest choice for the animal.
You do need to understand that there are some issues with helping the animal. First, raccoons carry rabies, and their feces has a large number of parasites to it. If you are going to help the animal then make sure you do not handle it directly, and that you cover your skin, hands and nasal passages whenever you are around it. You need to be safe.
Also understand that if you feed the raccoon, it is likely to stay. Now that it has a place to find food it is going to want to stay near your home. If you find an animal like this one of the best things you can do is call animal control and have them pick up the animal and take it to a wildlife refuge.
