Furry foundlings

The Audubon Zoo is caring for a rash of baby animals found in precarious circumstances around the state in recent weeks.

Among the animals rescued include a North American river otter found next to its dead mother in the marsh and five 2-week-old raccoons found living in a vending machine.

In Baton Rouge, a 12-week-old kit, or baby fox, was found at a demolition site.
