“When it arrived at the centre, we got it out of the kennel and it could hardly move,” stated Wagstaffe. “She had water in her lungs, equally she had hypothermia.”
Wagstaffe and his colleagues attempted to warm the raccoon up with an electric blanket. The fur on its tail had nearly rotted off from the rain, and it was suffering from dehydration.
The team took to social media to update the public on the status of the raccoon.
However, after several rounds of pain medication,treatment and warm blankets, the raccoon died that evening.
