You are so right, Dena. Especially because of the possibility of rabies. Some states (I know Ohio is one for sure) euthanize first and ask questions later. They don't allow rehabbing of raccoons at all. I always had mine tested if they died in my care and never had one come back positive, but all it takes is one to test positive and the news services run wild with it.
