Working together as a team to solve a problem is usually something we attribute only to humans. But a police officer in Missouri witnessed a family of raccoons display a beautiful feat of teamwork when they helped each other climb up a wall.
Officer Chris Williams wrote, “I am a Police Officer in Camdenton Missouri and was working security one evening at the local High School. I saw the mother raccoon on the wall with one of her babies as she was attempting to get her other baby 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. Great example of a mothers love and teamwork!”
