ALEXANDRIA, East Custis Avenue, unit block, Aug. 3. An animal-control officer investigating a report found a man keeping a raccoon as a pet. The man said he had found it as a baby while on a trip and didn’t want to leave it alone. Because having a raccoon as a pet is illegal, it was confiscated and taken to a wildlife rehabilitator.
