Injured baby raccoon Vittles walks again with wheelchair

An Arkansas baby raccoon is now walking again with the aid of a wheelchair after a brain injury had hindered her mobility

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- A baby raccoon with a brain injury that hinders her mobility is walking again in Arkansas with the help of a wheelchair.

Walkin' Pets project manager Jennifer Pratt says the wheelchair will adjust as Vittles grows. The company says Vittles can use the wheelchair to sharpen her balance and stability so she can walk on her own.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports the company says it's unlikely Vittles will make a full recovery. But early intervention sparks hope.
