Many of the animals who arrive at Hope For Wildlife have been injured by some form of human contact, but Betty White was simply brought to the center after a chicken owner became concerned that she would eat their chickens.
Pollen noted that there are more effective preventive measures to keep mammals away from your house than trapping them. "Play some really loud, bass rock music," she told CTV News with a grin. "If you can shine lights at them and play music, it's not a good place for them to raise babies, and they will actually move out."
As for all the animals who enter Hope For Wildlife, the goal is to get Betty White back into the wild. "She's healthy, so we're just going to wait a few more weeks until the weather gets warmer then she'll be able to go right back out," Pullen said.
Hope For Wildlife will relocate her to a location more suitable for a female raccoon, farther away from chickens and the humans who protect them.
