The CWF office in Kanata, Ont. often enjoys wild visitors, surrounded as it is by wildlife-friendly habitat and great native gardens. We recently had another wild encounter when a mother raccoon and her babies explored our native gardens.
After exploring the cans in the back, several raccoon kits discovered they could not get back out. CWF staff alerted by the movements of the anxious mother raccoon created escape ramps for the young, reuniting them with their mother.
