Hartford Connecticut Raccoon Control Situation: David, Bravo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a 10 year licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator ( primarily RVS) in CT. Several years ago I was foolishly duped into becoming a NWCO to help pay for rehabbing, since as a rehabber I have to pay for rehabbing out of my own funds unless I am a 501(c)3 non-profit. I only lasted 3 years before the culture of killing was too much for me to tolerate. I am now just rehabbing again. Your information about humanely removing a mother raccoon and her babies is what I pass along several hundred times a season, only to be presented with a litter of orphans a few days later. I keep trying to change the mindset. Last season I rehabbed 70 raccoons out of 425 babies total. Needless to say, I work so I can rehab. I am now the only active RVS rehabber in the northern half of the state. I decided it was time to found a 501(c)3 so I would not have to turn a baby away due to lack of funds. Safe Haven Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Inc is in its third year now. If I may, I would like to refer people who call my hotline with raccoons and squirrels in the attic problems to your website. You cover the problem and resolutions so much more eloquently than I. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job saving raccoons and squirrels and keeping families together! Susan
