Three young Racoons go to School to Enrich Student’s Lives

I am a veterinarian in Berlin and since I was five years old, I knew that I wanted to choose this job. My father had taught me that nature and human beings are equivalent and that animals need our support.

Today I own dogs, cats, sheep and a horse. Since March 2020 I have also taken care of three baby racoons who were abandoned by their mothers. I received special permission to raise them up in my private house. They are called Marvin, Paul and Fritzi. Fritzi, a female, has meanwhile become a real Instagram star.

Though the racoons are wild animals, they are incredibly trusting, curious and positive, just like small kids. They deserve to be protected. With other people, I have started a rescue station and also an association to fight against the killing of racoons by hunters. We go for example to schools to teach children about racoons. These animals are just a little sunshine. With their positive energy, they should not only enrich my life but also the lives of many other people.
