Raccoon News! Albino Raccoon Trapped in Tennessee

"'It was definitely thrilling, I guess you could say,' Caldwell said. "Some wildlife biologists say one in every 750,000 raccoons are albino. I’d say that’s fairly rare."

They freed the raccoons at Meeman-Shelby Forest, which is one of the wildlife management areas (WMA) in Shelby County.

'We've had several albino raccoons around Shelby Forest WMA in Shelby County,' said Amy Spencer, the information and education coordinator for Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. "

"Reports say an albino raccoon appears in one out of 750,000 raccoons."
