The raccoons

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.
