Carson arrived as a kit only 3 hours old! His mother had been caught in a live trap at a construction site. After releasing her they realized she had given birth in the live trap and they immediately brought Carson to our facility. Unfortunately, Carson has a deformity in his legs which is very apparent—they are short and bowed. He would not have been able to survive in the wild on his own with this condition.
