COVINGTON, Ga. – I shouldn’t take up a portion of this post by gloating about how I already knew that the raccoons that attacked a sleeping baby were probably family pets, but lookie there…I already did.

For those of you who are link impaired, police were called to a home earlier this month after a 9-month-old baby was attacked by two raccoons while it slept in its crib. One raccoon was shot and killed at the scene after it became aggressive towards responders, the other was captured and tested negative for rabies.

The infant would survive the severe bites to her head face and hands, but investigators were looking into whether the raccoons were wild or were pets. After the investigation was completed, it turns out the baby’s father, 35-year-old Michael Wayne Cannon, had taken the two raccoons in and had bottle fed them since June.

A month before the attack he had placed the pair outside in the backyard. Since then, the raccoons had been getting into the house through open windows and side panels of window air conditioning units. So for being a dumbass who nearly got his infant killed, he was charged with holding and possessing game species without a permit and unlawful possession of wildlife, both misdemeanors.

Keeping wild raccoons as pets…almost as lame as keeping wild squirrels as pets. Almost.
