Saving Baby Raccoons

One of the baby raccoons.

The Oakland Zoo and WildCare, a wildlife hospital and environmental education center, teamed up to save the lives of five baby raccoons. The raccoons had accidentally been transported from Florida to San Fransisco in the back of a moving truck. Wildcare took in the babies and nursed them back to health. Normally, Wilcare releases all rehabbed animals back to the wild, but that was not an option for these raccoons, who were so far from home.

The Oakland Zoo stepped in to take care of the animals until a permanent home can be found.
