Dog ramp helps trapped raccoons get to safety

by | Interesting |

A few weeks ago, animal control officers for the Town of Orangeville were called about a mother and three young raccoons stuck in a dumpster.

The officers sprung into action and placed a dog ramp they had in their truck into the dumpster. They cleared the area and waited a few minutes for the raccoons to climb out.

As soon as the raccoons escaped, they went straight for water in a nearby puddle. Happy to be free once again!

If you find wildlife in distress, call your local animal control services, or the government of Ontario’s 24/7 hotline, 1-833-9ANIMAL.

Here’s a little video of the raccoons coming out of the dumpster.

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves.  My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are.  Thank you SPCA.
