Baby Raccoon Bound in Duct Tape in Tucson; Authorities Search For Suspect
The Arizona Game and Fish Department is searching for the person responsible for putting duct tape around a baby raccoon’s head and legs and abandoning it for dead in Tucson.
Authorities say the badly injured 6-month-old raccoon was found near Tucson International Airport earlier this week. It had been abandoned there for up to three days, wildlife officials said.
The raccoon is now recovering at the Tucson Wildlife Center and is in fair condition.
Officials are seeking to press animal cruelty charges in the case. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Arizona Game and Fish Department at 623-236-7201.
