Here’s a story we wouldn’t have noticed if not for a reader sharing it with us: A former Wellesley resident named Dana Berry made news in Oakland when he came across a rare white raccoon while on volunteer cleanup duty with a group called Trash Falcons.
Berry at first thought he’d stumbled across an opossum in a trash container, but it turned out to be a white raccoon, which news station NBC Bay Area learned from wildlife experts that you only have a 1 in 750,000 chance of seeing. Berry released the raccoon back into the wild.
Berry grew up in Wellesley from ar0und the age of 5, graduated from Wellesley High School in 1988, and headed west to attend Occidental College in Los Angeles.
