GRAPHIC IMAGES: ,000 reward in case of severely burned raccoon in Barrie
The Fur-Bearers are responding to the disturbing news of a severely burned raccoon by offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the identification and conviction of the person(s) responsible.

Procyon Wildlife Centre in Beeton, Ontario, received the raccoon on August 6. She was brought in by a concerned resident who found her. The 3- to 4-month-old raccoon has severe burns across her face and body, and is being treated for both the burns, and the pain that accompanies them.

There are a lot of questions about what happened to this poor girl, and if it was a case of intentional cruelty, it’s paramount that the public come forward so investigators can identify and charge the person or persons responsible.

The young raccoon was found near Huronia North Park in Barrie, and it is believed the injuries were sustained on either Saturday, August 5, or Sunday, August 6.

We can’t say enough to express our gratitude for the compassion and care of this raccoon by Procyon Wildlife Centre. The Fur-Bearers believe that when the public sees the disturbing images of what was done to this young raccoon, people will do the right thing and contact police.

Anyone with information is asked to call Barrie Police at 705-725-7025.

The Fur-Bearers have undertaken approximately $8,100 in costs associated with our case challenging the lawfulness of the Conservation Officer Service killing a bear cub, and expect that figure to rise to nearly $10,000. Please consider making a gift to help us recover these costs and continue to advocate for the animals.
