We received several calls this morning about a mother raccoon and her baby. The mother raccoon had been hit and killed on the road and the baby was cuddled up on her dead body.

We went out to see if we could help the baby and sure enough his mom was dead and he was lying all cuddled into her with his head buried into her fur. He was obviously devastated about his mom. When we pulled up he slowly looked up at us, he was very afraid and tried to wake his mom up nudging her. We knew at that point we had to do something to help this poor little guy. The mom had been hit and killed last night and this poor little guy has layed with her all night in the bitter cold.

Now he is definitely a late born baby and is about 12 or 13 weeks old. He could not stay out there like that and there were no others around. The weather was getting nastly cold windy and snowing. If it was earlier in the year he may be ok on his own but in this situation we had to bring him in.

We caught him and got him in a kennel brought him back to the clinic. We treated him for endo and ecto parasites and set him up in a big outdoor winter enclosure.

Shiloh will need to over winter with us here at HWR and be released in the spring. We are trying to raise money to care for Shiloh for 5 months until he can be released. This fundraiser is to help with some of his expenses and includes things like food, treats, litter, Hydro for electic bowls and his enclosure need a new door.

Please help us to help Shiloh If you can, any amount helps. Thank you to the people who called us about Shiloh. When we all work together we can save more innocent wildlife and prevent some of their suffering and in Shiloh's case help ease their heartbreak.
