Death of Raccoon The Pumpkin. Famous Instagram Raccoon

Animal Death: A popular Instagram Raccoon name Pumpkin has died. The owner confirmed the death on CNN. Pumpkin died at the age of 5.

Raccoon-Pumpkin was a nibbler of tiny pancakes, reader of “Harry Potter” and a lover of mischief, avocados and long naps in precarious poses.

According to Laura Young, the owner of the late Pumpkin, her mother found a teeny newborn Pumpkin with a broken leg hanging out under the shade of a tree. Pumpkin’s raccoon mother never returned for her, and since there wasn’t an animal rescue near her Nassau home, Young took in the petite procyon.raccoon pumpkin

Clearly, Pumpkin was destined for viral fame.

Young made an Instagram account for Pumpkin shortly after her rescue in December 2014, and fans quickly glommed on for a daily dose of raccoon hijinks.

By the end of her life, she’d accrued more than 1.4 million followers.

Laura Young did not say the cause of Pumpkin death but most Raccoons live between 2-3 years, so age 5 was a grace.
