Blind Raccoon Serves as Federally Licensed Wildlife Ambassador

Apr 9, 2018

Trouper, the blind raccoon, captured the heart of Dorothy Lee (aka Miss Dot) several years ago.

Miss Dot is a wildlife rehabilitator, who fought to save Trouper's life after he was attacked by a golfer as a wild baby raccoon. He is now 9 years old, and though he's blind, he has a mission to help other animals as the official wildlife ambassador of the Wildlife Education Project.


The Wildlife Education Project is a non-profit that seeks to instill a lifelong respect for all living things and the environment. Miss Dot and Trouper join Gulf Coast Live to talk about the project's efforts through Trouper's educational appearances with Miss Dot throughout the state of Florida and more.
