1. Steven Tyler’s raccoon

Steven Tyler has always walked to his own beat and he has been a bit eccentric. This would include the pets he had in his younger years. On the Monday night show of David Letterman, Steven Tyler shares that he once had a pet raccoon when he lived in Yonkers.

A pet raccoon isn’t something considered normal and we wondered how anyone could actual get a raccoon domesticated as a pet. Calling around Los Angeles pet stores we found out raccoons aren’t sold at pet stores, but there are independent breeders who raise certain types of raccoons for household pets. This isn’t illegal and definitely can be a perfect pet if raised properly. In fact in Los Angeles, California there are over 3 dozen celebrities known to have a pet raccoon.
