Concerning raccoons

I haven't had much of a chance to update my LiveJournal yet, as I've been trying to get up to date on my TrailJournals account with reports of all the hiking I've been doing lately.

For assorted reasons, my "trail name" (an Appalachian Trail custom) is "Raccoon." So yesterday, my housemate (I have a new housemate, btw; more on that later), who is a paramedic, comes home with the news that she found an abandoned baby raccoon at the station, whose mother had become roadkill. So we're going to nurse said raccoon back to health before releasing it, assuming that it wants to be released at that point....
