Red Hot Raccoons Trapped in Dumpster: "Not On My Watch!" | Care2 Causes
A few years ago, I had moved from Maine to Rhode Island and was a manager for a sub shop chain in the city. One day I went to work at about two in the afternoon. About an hour into my shift, I was helping a guest at the counter when she mentioned a family of raccoons in a dumpster across the street in the professionals plaza. I asked about it and she said that they’d been out there all day. It was summer time and HOT. I couldn’t even imagine how hot it was in a dumpster in full sun. I was disappointed that all the people in that building knew about them (they were warning each other to stay away from the dumpster) and decided to stay away instead of figuring out how to help them.
