Is It Legal To Own And Raise A Raccoon In The Usa?

found a baby raccoon and have been raising it for like 4 weeks. it is about 7 weeks old now. I got it when its eyes were open. The mom was killed and the people (friends of mine) found the baby and felt bad, and wanted me to raise it. It's eyes are open now, and stuff and i feed it correctly and have researched how to feed it and care for it. Some sites say I can raie it and release it, some say it is a fine to own one and must turn it in. I would release it into the wild once i raised it and taught it to hunt and stuff. thanks

who cares if it's illegal? you saved that animal's life, so you deserve to look after it, everyone else would of most likely ran over it or left it to die. raccoons are natural to live in the us i think so it's not like it's endangered? but if it is SO WHAT, aslong as your looking after it correctly and you want to keep it for yourself then i would consider getting a license for it. if i were you, i would keep it, you give it all the love and it wouldn't want to leave you anyway, and it just makes you more cool that you have a different pet to everyone else. :D
