RidicuList: Raccoon's rocky relationship

There's nothing unusual about sharing pictures of your pet or dancing with your pet. In rare circumstances it might even be OK to shower with your pet. But one man who did all these things with his pet raccoon found out the hard way… it is illegal to keep a wild animal as a pet. Should he get her back? The raccoon controversy makes tonight's RidicuList.

    He should get the animal back. If he agrees to take the animal to schools and 4-H club events, etc....he might be able to apply and receive an exhibitor license from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    My parents had a raccoon for years. They got it shots every year like a cat, maintained its health and it was an amazing, beloved pet. As long as the raccoon is seen by a vet, why not!

    Give the poor guy his raccoon back. It's better for the animal and his human.

    Yes, he should get the raccoon back. The animal has been domesticated and can no longer live in the wild. If the man committed a crime by taming the animal, then let him pay a fine. The animal will die otherwise.

    I think it's very mean to take the little raccoon away from him. He gathered up all those nasty traps that kill raccoons. Those are the people who should be pursued by the authorities. He's a sweet guy and probably a rarity where he lives.
