Can you guess which baby was looking up while we were cutting into the drywall? No worse for the wear, a little bit of drywall dust causes no harm.
These babies were found down a wall inside a garage and the only way we were able to access them was to cut into the drywall above them. It amazes me how little space a mother raccoon needs for her babies and herself - this space measured only 14 inches x 6 inches.
All babies were placed in our heated reunion box outside the garage for mom. This mother decided to move into our reunion box with her babies for a few days and then finally moved them to an alternate den site. This happens every so often, which we allow to happen to make the transition to a new den site easier for her.
