Video: Wildlife Experts Help Raccoon Family in Arlington

A division of the Humane Society of the United States recently helped an Arlington household that had a family of raccoons trapped in their basement and chimney.

Experts from Humane Wildlife Services, a wildlife conflict solution service provided to homeowners and businesses in the Washington, D.C. area, helped remove the raccoons from the home, then helped reunite the raccoon family — a mom and her four babies — while ensuring that they found a new home.

The Humane Society produced a video about the incident. The video “really shows the strength of the maternal bond between a raccoon mom and her young,” according to a narrator.
