Baby Raccoons, and Their Foster Mother

I keep hearing about pit bulls who adopt kittens, baby chicks… and now baby raccoons. How did these dogs ever get such a fearsome reputation? They’re obviously quite good-hearted.

As for the baby raccoons–well, if it was me, I couldn’t send them into the wilderness. These little guys are much too tame for that.

Jean-Pierre Hallet–remember him? Congo Kitabu–said that just about any animal will respond to love and care: and to prove it, tamed a rhinoceros. And now we know that rhinos raised in zoos by humans (in addition to their real mothers) learn to be friendly and playful.

Ah, you should’ve seen my iguana! Like a good dog disguised as a lizard.
