Fred is by far the tamest wild raccoon we've ever encountered. He's amazingly gentle and sweet as well as incredibly adorable! Click "Like" if you agree. Could it be possible that a wild raccoon can be born to be so tame or might Fred be someone's secret pet they let out once a month for a brief while? He's certainly captivated us as well as stolen our hearts!
NOTE to commenters: Fred lives in a region where there hasn't been a case of raccoon rabies for over 25 years which is tracked and verified by the State's Public Health Dept.
We are fortunate to be able to observe a variety of wildlife since we reside next to a protected preserve where raccoons are one of the many animals consider it home. We hope you will also enjoy watching this video of the close encounter of our charming furry friends.
Please note Fred is not our pet and is a wild raccoon thus please follow your local wildlife guidelines for the safety of humans and animal wildlife alike.
Additional note: I'm very well aware of the dangers of interacting with wild animals since I professionally work with a variety of dangerous wild species. No children nor pets are ever harmed, especially the wild animals captured in these videos.
