PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - It was a sight one animal control officer said she had never seen. A curious raccoon in Port St. Lucie needed surgery today, after getting caught in an illegal steel trap.
The staff at Kindness Animal Hospital has named the animal Rooney.
When Rooney was caught Monday morning by Port St. Lucie Animal Control, he had a steel trap clenched around its front paw.
Wildlife officials say this kind of trap is illegal to use to capture wildlife.
Veterinarians are happy it was only a raccoon in this case.
"It could have done this to someone's child. Children use their hands like raccoons. A child could have reached into the trap and lost their hand. It could also have been someone's dog or cat who could have gotten their foot caught in the trap," said Dr. Rose Eger with Kindness Animal Hospital.
Dr Eger says she had to amputate Rooney's paw but once he recovers, he'll be able to return to the wild.
