Furry cub enamoring police a raccoon dog

A bear-like baby animal, which has turned darling of police officers in Qingpu since being adopted by chance, turns out to be a raccoon dog.
Workers from the city wildlife protection station went to visit and check the animal today and concluded it was a raccoon dog.
A young officer at the Xujing Police Station responded to a resident's call Friday evening that a "bear" was wandering about a townhouse complex and appeared lost. Soon the officer returned with a furry animal, so small it could be held in one hand.
The cute creature has short dark fur and looks like a bear cub. It has good temperament and looks healthy. Police posted its pictures on Weibo microblog in a hope to find out what the animal really is. Their microblog has been re-tweeted thousands of times.
The officer who adopted the cub said he had to restrict the time of visits by his colleagues who all love this baby animal.
"This morning I fed it water mixed with honey and it seemed to like it very much. The little fellow is very mild, never barking or biting anyone. It is in good spirit and runs really fast," the officer wrote on Weibo.
The wildlife protection workers today responded to the injury call. They examined the animal and found it had no injuries. The workers had decided to keep it on observation for one day and release it to a suitable environment outdoors tomorrow.
