Petunia was found alone and limping as a baby after being hit by a car. Female coatis usually live in family groups so to find a baby alone was a really bad sign. She was rescued and rehabilitated at the Center. She made an excellent recovery, and is now a healthy and happy adult Coati.
Unfortunately, she is so used to people we are unable to release her. Coatis are viewed as pests, and are regularly poisoned if they go near human habitations. As Petunia has no fear of people, and already associates us with food, it is highly likely this would be her fate if she was released.
Petunia is a very curious girl, who loves playing with our volunteers’ shoes when they clean and feed her! She is intelligent and full of energy, so daily enrichment is a very important part of her care.
