People who keep wildlife like raccoons as pets might encounter some pushback. From a cultural standpoint, there’s a common belief that wildlife pets like raccoons are a bad idea since they do not have an extensive history of domestication. While raccoons aren’t traditional pets, we can point to historical figures like former U.S. President Calvin Coolidge, who kept two raccoons during his time in office.
Don’t get fooled by their cute faces. Raccoons, once they invade your home, can be a nightmare. From damaging your property to being a health hazard, raccoons are a danger you must not take lightly.
