Born Free

I captured this Raccoon in my yard at about midnight and I took a pitcher full of water and a cup so I could sprinkle water all over it because critter's in a trap tend to not drink anything because of fear I guess and this way I can let it drink water off it's fur until I get up in the morning and haul it 15 miles away. What was I thinking by holding the camera in it's only way out of the cage, was I could capture a cool picture of it leaving to be free with a lake just 10 feet away from where I released it.
