Augusta Fire Department rescues orphaned baby raccoons

AUGUSTA - A pair of baby raccoons have a better chance at survival thanks to people who were willing to get involved.

The Augusta Fire Department shared photos of the unusual rescue mission.

 

They said the babies lost their mother last week and have been scared and hungry in a tree for days.

 

The warden service asked if the fire department could help get them down and they were happy to respond.

 

Lt. Jason Mills and fire fighter Randy Lewis managed to bring the critters down so they could be sent to a specialized center for care.

 

The warden service does everything it can to let nature take its course, but in this case felt the best thing to do would be to bring them down and feed them.
