Raccoon Refuses To Leave The Man Who Saved His Life

When Loki the raccoon was just a baby, Kat Wagg found him abandoned and extremely sick. Fearing for his life, Wagg took Loki in, and made a lifelong friend.

Little Loki was suffering from dehydration, parasites, abscesses and other injuries when he was found, and likely would not have made it on his own.

Loki was nursed back to health, and was raised with the hopes of eventually being released back into the wild.

As Loki got older, his parents made sure he was free to leave whenever he wanted and could always come and go as he pleased , but ultimately, Loki chose to stay.

The raccoon had no interest in leaving the family who raised him, and stayed with them even though he was old enough to leave. After all, they saved his life.

“Most animals naturally respond to the call of the wild and leave their parents to live on their own. Loki was a rare exception and wouldn’t leave no matter how much we encouraged him,” Wagg wrote in a video about Loki.

Loki lived happily with his family until his final days, which unfortunately came too soon. The raccoon passed away a year after being rescued from complications with a vaccine.

Even though Loki’s life was short, it would have been even shorter had it not been for the incredible family who rescued him, and raised him to have the freedom to do whatever felt right to him.
