Burney From Burney Falls State Park

Created more than a million years ago, MacArthur–Burney Memorial Falls California State Park is far from the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary but there’s a story to tell.

An orphaned newborn raccoon was found and rescued in the Burney Falls area. Her eyes weren’t open yet and she was being attacked by wild birds. The little one was rescued and ultimately spent time quarantined at Turtle Bay. Ultimately she moved to the Folsom Zoo. Named Bernadette (Burney for short) she’s a very healthy, spunky four month’s old .raccoon. Currently, she and senior male raccoon Crash spend time together in the enclosure prudently separated for the time being
