Do you know who Raccoon Whisperer is? He is a man named James Blackwood, who lives in Canada in the Province of Nova Scotia. And the reason that we have decided to give a spot to James in our post is that he has been taking care of raccoons for 25 years. That’s right! 

This man has been feeding raccoons and looking after them all by himself for such a long time. To show the world how great raccoons are, James has also started a YouTube channel where he shares videos of himself and raccoons. And people are actually liking his channel.

“It was snowing with freezing temperatures and the raccoons were super hungry and knew they had to stock up for the long winter,” reads the description of the video.

Once the bucket is empty, James goes inside and comes back with another bucket full of hot dogs

“This was my wife’s project, and she died in 2003 of cancer and begged me on her death bed to take care of her raccoons and cats and her mother,” reads the description of one of James’ videos.

After that, James brings the raccoons some cookies and dog food

“I honored her wishes and took care of the cats and her mother for the next ten years. I have two rescue cats that live here Connor and Charlotte but they stay indoors. Special Note: thank you for the kind offers of money and Gifts but I cannot accept I would rather you donate to your local SPCA or Animal Welfare locations in your area,” James continues.
