Our first raccoons came to us in 1998 from Montpellier in the south of France, where they had been kept as pets.
The little female arrived in France as a stowaway on a container ship transporting goods from the United States. The poor creature had been inadvertently locked in a container for over a month! On arrival in France, and to the great surprise of the dockers in Rouen, she jumped out and threw herself into a puddle of water. She was captured and taken to an animal hospital, and then signed over to our care early in 1999.
