Please make sure her kids are told NOT to touch raccoons, baby or otherwise.  
These are NOT pussy cats.  They are wild animals.  Any attempt to touch a baby 
coon in front of the mama will put the person in jeopardy of a nasty bite or 
even an attack.  Raccoons are rabies vectors.  They might not have the disease 
but they could be carriers.  It's a good idea to watch from afar and not get 
involved with close contact.  Rescuers know how to deal with raccoons so as not 
to upset them but kids just see a cute puff ball of fur and want to grab.
