Saskatoon Couple Forced From Home Over Raccoon

A raccoon has forced a Saskatoon couple to move out of their house.

But it is not for the reason you may think. The couple kept a raccoon as a pet.

Dennis, the raccoon, is five year old and has lived with Wendy and Ron Hook for three years.

That was until earlier this month when someone reported them to the City.

Animal control bylaws in Saskatoon prohibit raccoons as pets.

The couple is looking to move outside Saskatoon, they say giving up Dennis is not an option.
