Well… this is a first.
On January 25th, we got a call about a woman who found three newborn raccoons in a snowbank. Our phone volunteer was stunned and unsure if this was a prank call.
Sure enough… these three newborns had been dumped in the snow. They were near frozen and lifeless when found. Their rescuer acted fast by bringing them back up to temperature. Amazingly, they survived.
The finder was planning on renting a car today to get them to us, but we decided these babies couldn’t wait. With the help of a volunteer from Ontario Wildlife Transport, they were picked up and were able to be met at a truck stop with our Intern.
It took nearly 3 hours in stopped traffic with no visibility to get them. They are doing well this morning. Safe and warm with full bellies.
Please welcome Frostie, Blizzard, and Snowflake!
