Critter Fight...critter lost...

Roach looks worse than Baby...(below) most of his injury is to his lip and it is swollen pretty good.
Baby has most of her injury to the eye area and it is becoming swollen as well..2 raccoon fights!
Good thing is though both of them had their rabies shots like just a month ago (we get them every year just for such occasions) so we know they won't have to be put down...
headed out with the compresses...they did real well hunting for the crowd though! They got each a star.
Aren't they pitiful looking though....

Hi, Mary! Oh my! Two raccoon fights? Sheesh! At least you made sure they had their rabies shots in advance. Hope they mend fast! :-)

OMG....did this happen during the night? I'm afraid my dog would never spend another night outside if that were the case. We get racoons around here too & I am always worried about the cats that are left outside to fend for themselves. Poor babies....so glad they'll be okay. Have a great week!

WOW. We've noticed over the past five years an increase in birds: Magpies and Ravens, and critters: Raccoons, Skunks and Squirrels. We don't have a dog, but the in-laws have on the farm - Blue Heeler and a Lab. They both battle the coons - constantly.
