Raccoon Rescue From FresCo
This raccoon was found in a recycling dumpster at the FresCo by High Park on Friday. As you can see in the photo, the owner of the building attempted to help the raccoon out by placing a ladder inside for him to use but had no luck getting him to leave.
Gates Wildlife Technician David arrived on site and was able to use our catch pole to lift the raccoon out of the bin and release him at the back of the parking lot on site.
Although raccoon’s are amazing climbers, they are often frightened in situations like this and are less likely to use the ladder placed into bin due to the fear of being caught.
