Send Mae the Raccoon Home to her Family

This petition had 7,877 supporters

Please release Mae from her new life in captivity back to her family, the Greer's, with whom she lived her entire life, since before her eyes were open 7+ years ago.

This family followed Washington State protocol by trying to turn her into a wildlife rescue after rescuing her, and only kept her when she was turned away and they were provided with a proper permit.

By releasing this domesticated pet you are not "setting a bad example" due to the specific circumstances surrounding her case. It is still against the law to own a raccoon as a pet - they were given a "subpermitee" permit as a wildlife rescue from Wolftown on Vashon Island.

Please grandfather this permit and return this poor animal to it's home.

You are harming a family, an animal, and wasting Washington tax payer dollars on a case that should have never been a problem to begin with due to the Greer's permit to own her.

Please sign & share this petition, every signature helps. And also donate to Mae's legal fund if you can since the WDFW is making the Greer's fight this battle in court:
