A lovely moment when a family of raccoons was trying to save the baby raccoon was captured.
In an article written by Julija Televiciute of Bored Panda, it was disclosed that police officer Chris Williams spotted the raccoon family near a high school in Camdenton, Missouri.
The raccoons were acting unusual so he came closer. He then started to witness a lovely scene – the whole raccoon family teamed up to help the raccoon baby get over the wall.
“The mother raccoon leaned over the wall as the baby held onto her legs so she could reach out and grab the other baby and pull him up,” Williams wrote on YouTube.
“Great example of a mother’s love and teamwork!” he added.
Raccoons, with scientific name Procyon lotor, are highly intelligent and curious creatures; but can also be a nuisance to any homeowner.
The animals, which have an average lifespan in the wild for two to three years, have gray fur with a black mask and four to seven black rings around its tail; pointy snout with a black nose; dexterous front paws. These are natively found throughout most of North America; but have emerged recently in some parts of Europe and Japan.
