    In Canada it is a criminal offence to house or treat wildlife as pets/. those who try need lots of attention; no not the raccoon, the owner. Why it’s about them not the animal. People stress out those that are wild taking away their Mother? just think what you just said….taking away their Mother then they submit to you/ special place in hell for those who separate mother and child

    They simply were not meant to be pets. They taste bad also.

    They’re so cute, but after watching this video and reading some of the comments, it seems better for them to be free of domestic settings.

    I know a guy that raised one beautifully. After 7 years it attacked him in the face, horribly scaring this guy. They can have uncontrollable fits with those teeth and claws. When we would go there to play cards, it would get my gun from my pocket then play with my feet, and sit in my lap for hours. I feel lucky that it didn’t do that to me.

    Raccoons carry many diseases and can pass them on to other animals and humans. It best to leave them alone like all wild animals.

    The local raccoon mommies teach their babies to dig for grubs in my front yard. The trees keep the grass shady, so it’s better conditions. They dig with their front paws while rotating their entire body with their hind legs.

    I have a love/hate relationship with these amazing animals. I’ve killed some and we raised one. They are brilliant, engaging and steal your heart very quickly. They also steal everything else and kill everything smaller than them very quickly with the same cute look on their face the whole time. They are my little buddies when it’s just me (plus leather gloves) but they must fear me if I’m protecting what they tirelessly try to kill. All in all they are probably my favorite frenemies!

    I love Racoon federation ❤️

  14. SILVIA ALATZIA on January 2, 2023 at 1:43 am

    It s NOT A PET.
    IT S A WILD ANIMAL

  15. Makayla Burlingame on January 2, 2023 at 1:45 am

    Raised one for 10 years. It was a nightmare my brother and bill did not get along. But it would do anything my mom said. It would steal everything. There was no cage that could hold him

  16. Pablo Lowenstein on January 2, 2023 at 1:48 am

    I raised a raccoon. It was cute and funny but it bit me once so I shot it.

  17. Joseph Cooper on January 2, 2023 at 1:51 am

    Their tails make swell hats ….

  18. SinEater on January 2, 2023 at 1:51 am

    Raccoons are wild animals. Anyone who considers having one as a pet is a selfish animal abuser.

  19. Marshall Sage on January 2, 2023 at 1:52 am

    I had a raccoon that I got from a house I was building for a customer. On day I heard chirping above the garage ceiling. There was a bonus room above the garage and 16’ joists. Long story short, I got the raccoons and the mother out. I put them in the woods but the next day one of the babies was still where I left them. I started bottle feeding and later the raccoon was my best friend. She was so good and playful and an amazement to me everyday. My raccoon was my friend. I was the first thing she saw when she opened her eyes after two weeks. She was the happiest I have ever been in my life. I loved her and loved taking care of her. That raccoon gave me the happiest days of my life.

    Raccoons are part of the BEAR family…….I replaced Rowdy’s natural mother…….got him back to his natural home after two years…….loved
    scrambled eggs, and washed his grapes……got along well with the cat, and followed me through the woods……

  21. La Ra on January 2, 2023 at 1:55 am

    She is discussing,,, to breed a wild animal for profit, knowing most will not get a long actin home,,, she sucks

  22. Bp on January 2, 2023 at 1:55 am

    I’ve been feeding generations of Raccoons for years, they’re spectacular and we have a mutual respect but they are wild and that’s how they should stay.
    No matter how cute they should stay wild and visit you on their terms.

  23. 8alakai8 on January 2, 2023 at 1:56 am

    raccoons are not pets, leave them alone to be raccoons. why do people ego make them think they they have to mess with everything?

  27. M Davis on January 2, 2023 at 2:02 am

    I have raised 50 raccoon. Some raccoon are happy to be with people and some raccoon are high strung.. I only have had i bite she didn’t want to go in cage to be set free.

  28. Fernanda Jiménez on January 2, 2023 at 2:03 am

    Where can i get one in Arizona?

  29. lawnmowerman4040 on January 2, 2023 at 2:05 am

    It’s all fun and games till he rips your chickens heart out

  30. RWD Channel on January 2, 2023 at 2:05 am

    You may wake up with your face half eaten off but it was worth it.

  31. Michael Weaver on January 2, 2023 at 2:06 am

    The only good raccoon is a dead raccoon

  32. Feb Sign on January 2, 2023 at 2:06 am

    After working at a rescue centre for raccoons I would not recommend having them in the house but a pen outside. They like to mess things up ,but we all loved these animals

  33. Emily stevens on January 2, 2023 at 2:06 am

    I love the spunk of the raccoon

  34. Dawn on January 2, 2023 at 2:07 am

    So she feeds them foods that cause problems. Can you imagine wild raccoons massaging each other’s tummies. If your going to own a wild animal,or any animal at least take the time to research the proper foods

  35. Richard Quick II on January 2, 2023 at 2:09 am

    I had a friend rescue a young raccoon whose head was stuck in a glass jar of applesauce it found in the trash. It was never really a pet, and one day my friend was playing a game of hide the treat… He put a dog kibble in one hand and put his hands to the raccoon to see if it would pick which fist the kibble was in. The raccoon picked the correct hand, and bit my friend to get him to drop the kibble… This started about two months of medical care to treat the bite wound, which punctured the cartilage around his finger joints.

  36. Dalai Dolly on January 2, 2023 at 2:10 am

    I will never understand why people continue do you think they should keep exotic pets. Raccoons are a real problem in the suburbs. Because of their intelligence, they are truly nuisance animals. If you have a pet door, you have to keep it blocked at night because they will come in and turn on the water empty your cereal boxes on your sofa, rip open bags of potato chips and empty your trash cans out onto the floor. They have little fear of humans and they carry rabies. I wish people would just stop trying to domesticate animals that belong in the wild and take care of the domesticated animals we already have too many of.

  37. 8alakai8 on January 2, 2023 at 2:11 am

    i wonder how smart they are

  38. Jason Torres on January 2, 2023 at 2:13 am

    It seems this raccoon is looking for something.

  39. David Baron on January 2, 2023 at 2:13 am

    Trust me. I’ll watch EVERY video on YouTube before I get a pet Raccoon.

  40. Tina Windham on January 2, 2023 at 2:14 am

    I have one that visits everyday to get food. She comes in and the 3 dogs, 3 rabbits and 1 cat don’t blink an eye. They figure”another cousin???”

  41. H33t533k3r on January 2, 2023 at 2:16 am

    "Wild" animals belong in the "wild"

  42. Loyal Busse on January 2, 2023 at 2:17 am

    If you like seeing racoons you need to watch The Racoon Whisper, (utube) older guy from Canada. He made a promise to feed his wife’s raccoons when she passed. Now he has approx. 30 to40 extremely large raccoons that show up every nite!

    Raccoon moment

  44. Gwaithmir on January 2, 2023 at 2:20 am

    I rescued a baby raccoon 4+ years ago, but I kept it outside the house. It visited me often and like to have its fur brushed and combed. It showed up two summers in a row with a sow and babies. Unfortunately, he didn’t show up last spring and I think it may have died in its den or fell victim to coyotes.

  45. Tyrinath on January 2, 2023 at 2:21 am

    The idea of properly domesticated raccoons is a very interesting one, but my goodness, they are dangerously smart.

  46. Rah-mown on January 2, 2023 at 2:21 am

    Oh thanks for the heads up dude
