Raccoon Loses Rear Leg but Perseveres

18 Aufrufe
One of the Backyard north raccoons showed up missing its right hind leg recently. It was most likely the result of chewing the remains of its hind leg off at what would be the equivalent of our knee joint which was probably shattered. Amazingly the Raccoon is hanging in there, but very vulnerable in this condition. I suspect this was not done by a professional trapping as it was August, but by someone who has an old trap that is way too strong and big for a raccoon, but meant for a coyote and larger or maybe even an illegal old bear trap. It may have been baited for coyotes or who knows what goes through some peoples mind when they do such things - and the raccoon had the misfortune to be attracted to the bait. It would be hard for a Raccoon to chew through solid leg bone, but the damage appears to be done right at the "knee joint" which when smashed is just held together by ligaments and tissue.
