It’s not just humans that need to diet and detox after Christmas; sometimes our four-legged friends need to watch their waistlines too.

At Drusillas Park, one furry resident in particular has recently attracted the attention of head keeper Mark Kenward - Woody the racoon, who appears to have eaten more than his festive fair share.

Racoons will eat almost anything, although at Drusillas they enjoy a varied diet of fruit, cucumber, celery, chicken, mice, eggs, fish and insects. Mark said, “Woody has always enjoyed his food but he has been hoovering up all the best bites and not burning off the calories. We have made adjustments to his eating plan and will keep a close eye on him.”
