WISH reported that a spokeswoman for the city of Indianapolis said the woman was cited for each raccoon for having wildlife animals in a home without a permit. According to the local news station, the permit is issued by the Department of Natural Resources.

According to the spokeswoman, the homeowner worked as a wildlife rehabilitator, but her permit expired. Ten of the raccoons had to be euthanized because of health problems, but the other 19 were taken to a wildlife rehab with proper permits.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officials said the raccoons will be released back into the wild.

The homeowner, according to WISH, wasn’t happy about removal. See her response in the video below.
