Raccoons are ok for the first year or two... Then they hit sexual maturity and be come aggressive. They are also prone to obesity in captivity and very destructive to your house. All in all they make bad pets

If she lives with her boyfriend then she has a say! For all of you people who say racoons are cute and cuddly and you had one as a pet, I'm sure the racoon was always sweet and never destroyed anything right? Wrong!!! I had a friend who raised one from a baby and it was all cute and cuddly until it got into everything and destroyed some stuff. When it was older it started biting and scratching everyone so she had to let it go. Great pet idea!

If you raise a raccoon, then set it free, it probably wouldn't make it and starve to death because it wouldn't know how to hunt if it was raised from a cub. Now, if it's an older raccoon and you take care of it, then let it go, it will become lazy and not hunt.

There's a reason ppl don't have them commonly. They are domestically compatible.......it's not just Bc they don't want em. Raccoons won't become domesticated for a home.

They can be tamed if you get them as a baby I had one for 4 years and by far the best animal I have ever had!!! VERY SMART she lived in the house like any other animal would have she would Turn on the faucet in the bathroom to drink get food out the fridge.

It's been discovered that racoons in captivity tend to be overfed then they explode, raining gore, blood and guts all over your small children and furniture.

Well really, I don't think a raccoon is a good idea, this comment was merely a joke. And the reason I posted 17, was because its not true that as long as you raise a wild animals from a baby/cub, they'll be obedient and tame as adults. I'm not saying there aren't cases of this but most animals will react upon instincts if given the opportunity.
