Raccoon Family Employs Awesome Teamwork to Scale a Wall

Mother raccoon and her babies use teamwork to scale a wall. 

Bet you didn’t know raccoons are capable of teamwork! A police officer in Camdenton, Missouri captured some great footage of a mother raccoon and her babies figuring out a pretty ingenious way to get the whole family over a steep, difficult-to-climb wall.

This video is sure to put a smile on your face.

Raccoons have always perplexed me. Earlier this month I drove across two counties here in Michigan at sunset and it seemed every mother raccoon and her babies were out in the middle of the roads that night. You see so many dead ones hit on the road and they seem so dumb when they get caught in your headlights. Then you see a video like this and think “that’s really clever!”

So after seeing this video I don’t know what to believe anymore. I guess some raccoons are smarter than others? Whatever the case, this mother and her babies certainly made for an entertaining video!
