An inside look at animal care at Lynnwood's PAWS

  • Nick Adams / For The Herald

The X-ray above shows pregnant raccoon that was taken to the PAWS Wildlife Center in Lynnwood with a fractured leg and severe head trauma. Three raccoons were delivered by cesarean section and were able to nurse on their mother. However, she never recovered from the accident.

The raccoons were among the hundreds of animals cared for at PAWS each year. Since it started 45 years ago, the organization has grown into a giant in the Northwest in caring and advocating for animals, and it's looking for a new and bigger home. You can read more about it Sunday in The Herald and on HeraldNet.

In the meantime, here's a fascinating gallery of more X-rays of animals treated at PAWS.
