Sam (Raccoon) and Chick

Sam was probably around 3 months old. I'm not sure how old the chick was, it was one that we hatched.

Sam was orphaned. He had 3 other siblings that I gave to others to raise and release. We got Sam in March or April of 1998.


Sam was just so funny. He liked limbing on my husband's head. He loved hot dogs.

I raised Sam until he was ready to be released. He liked playing with the new chickens hatched. He was too young at the time to know that a raccoon eats a chicken, not plays with one.

What a great job you do! Bless you for releasing the raccoons to the wild. It must be very hard to do after raising them.
