Three baby raccoons befriend a fisherman at a creek in Wooster, Ohio. The extremely playful critters crawled on top of the man and followed him around. Encounters between wild raccoons and humans are common throughout the United States, but what makes this scene heartbreaking is the possibility that baby raccoons are orphans. A second fisherman who came upon the scene not only fed the raccoons a dead fish, but built them a shelter near where they were found.

Did you ever see their mother? If they did not have a mother, they may have needed your help. I hope, that you made sure, that they were okay before you left them there to fend for themselves, or to wait for their mother's return. I have a feeling, that something happened to their mother, for them to be that clingy and hungry. I raised a newborn raccoon found in a fallen tree. I, also, kept her as a pet, because she was terrified of the outdoors. Raccoons are extremely intelligent. They are, also, very possessive, very curious, and very persistent in their quest to problem solve the "works" of anything in their environment. My raccoon was always trying to figure out how things worked, so she would fiddle with things, and unscrew nuts and bolts to take things apart. When she knew, that I did not want her to take something apart, she would put one of her hands in her mouth (like a child sucking her thumb), while her other hand was behind her back taking something apart. "Not me. I didn't do it." She was, also, subborn, but … OH, SO CUTE!!!! I loved her, dearly!!!!

Mothers often leave their cubs alone for the majority of the day because they are less likely to be found by predators if they are alone.
