The Toronto Wildlife Centre (TWC) says a young racoon had just begun learning about the world when she was caught in a trap.
The bait in the trap was bread soaked in windshield wiper fluid.
She was vomiting when she was found.
At TWC, her system was flushed to save her.
After a week of special care, Veterinarian Dr. Diana Sinclair confirmed the patient was on the mend and hadn’t sustained any internal damage.
The young raccoon has been moved to an outdoor enclosure, where she’s able to climb and explore in preparation for her release.
The person responsible was charged with animal cruelty.
