Brick and Brack

Early one Friday, a Wildlife Rehabilitator responded to a plea for help to save a pair of baby raccoons that were trapped behind a brick wall at a business in South Milwaukee.

The concerned business owner had heard the babies crying in the wall for two days. It appeared these little ones had either lost their mother or they had fallen somewhere where their mother could not retrieve them. Whatever the reason, these precious babies were orphans in immediate need of help. A Wildlife Rescuer was dispatched.

Looking down inside the wall from the top of a step ladder, our rescuer could see that there were two baby raccoons inside the wall 9 feet below him. They were too young to climb out themselves and there was no mother raccoon present to rescue them.
