Why are Raccoons Getting High Blood Sugar?
Raccoons have quickly learned how to adapt and survive in urban areas, and many are living the good life. The internet is inundated with videos of the amusing antics of urban dwelling raccoons. You simply need to Google “fat raccoon” and you will be swamped with funny clips of overweight raccoons falling through office ceilings or stuck in vents, and obese raccoons trying to balance on narrow walls. And entertaining as this may be, it has serious consequences for the long-term health and longevity of the raccoon population.
