      Wildlife Officials seize orphaned raccoon from her loving human family

      Coonrippy is name that is probably familiar with many people. He is a big, burly man with a distinguishing long white beard, a man more comfortable in overalls and living a no frills rural life. Don't let his rugged lumberjack looks fool you, this man has a story to tell and heart so big many could learn from his life.

      Why is this any different than a parent who loves his child? Please free Rebekah!

      There is no reason Rebekah can't stay where she is loved and well cared for. It would be different if she was abused. The law should take the circumstances into consideration when removing an animal from their home.

      The poor little raccoon will not be able to survive in the wilderness. Send her back to her family. Thanks
