Well, these sort of laws change often in every state and internet resources are often obsolete or incomplete.
Laws vary state to state also. I suggest to persons with this question to call your local wildlife/fish and game/ or DNR office for current laws and provisions for keeping such animals.
As a former wildlife rescue/rehabber, a couple strong pointers about Raccoon.
>>They are the number one vector animal for zoonotic diseases and rabies.
> They are wild animals and that is where they should be left alone. Putting them into captivity,is on the border of cruelty.
>encountering a sick or injured animal,'don't do anything'. Call your wildlife/DNR office for possible connection to a rehabber or assistance. Injured or sick animals are more likely to bite. The same I suggest for babies known to be orphaned,never assume they are.
> where raccoon are legal pets, you can count on breeders,and that should be the only source.
Their instinctive behavior, they can bond with humans. They associate with them, and people seem to love them, but they are not good pets, Little hellions with a black mask that take a LOT of patience. I know his from experience with friend that kept them. A vet, if needed, would have to be an exotics and that service will not be cheap.
I am from the old school when keeping such pets might mean rabies shots and kept a menagerie myself, squirrels,skunk,porcupine, even an alligator. My outlook is a bit different now for my experience.
Like a nice unusual pet, Rats are hard to beat, degus, chinchillas, Emu and Llama for farm sort.
Learn from my mistakes so an innocent animal doesn't pay the price of yours.
Hope you understand.
