Rescued Raccoon Thinks It’s A Dog!

raccoonRosie Kemp, a Nassau, Bahamas resident, found a baby raccoon that had fallen out of a tree. Having sustained some injuries including a broken leg, with its mother nowhere to be found, the raccoon was helpless. Kemp’s daughter, Laura Young, decided to adopt the little creature, naming it “Pumpkin.” After a gradual recovery from her injuries, Pumpkin moved in with Young, her husband and their two dogs, becoming part of the family. In fact she now thinks she’s a dog!
