Crawdads for Baby Raccoons
This summer was an unseasonably hot one and we had many baby raccoons to care for. Because raccoons love cold, running water, what better than to give them some food they would naturally find there? We received a load of crawdads from the coast that had been brought to us and the raccoons went crazy for them. They would normally fish for them out of streams and rivers and though the crawdads have hard outer shells, they were no match against the young raccoons’ teeth. They absolutely loved the crawdads and it was a great treat for them in the hot summer sun!
