Rescue of Baby Raccoons & Their Mama Stuck in Drainpipe (VIDEO)
For the New England Wildlife Center, the business of mending broken wings and nursing orphaned songbird hatchlings is all in a day’s work. Inside the exam rooms at their environmentally designed hospital, all manner of wild things are healed with the intention of returning them back to their natural habitat as quickly as possible. The center is a haven for animals who have absolutely nowhere else to go, and because of the specialized veterinary care provided here, tens of thousands have gone on to see the sun again.
Last week, the team got to work on the delicate rescue of a mother raccoon who had become wedged in a pipe when trying to escape from the people who were panicking upon finding her. As you’ll see in this video, both mama and her babies are doing just fine and are once again living as a family at the forest’s edge where they belong.
