Two raccoons are captured on video teaming up to create a chain and help their baby get over a wall.
In the video, one of the raccoons is filmed standing at the top of the wall and holding the feet of its partner who dangles down toward the baby.
The little one then tries to grab hold of its parent’s outstretched paws in order to scramble up the wall.
Two raccoons were caught on camera using Mission Impossible-style tactics to help their baby over the wall.
Here is the video:
And here are the highlights:
Chris Williams, who took the video, said:
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!
The first attempt is not successful as the baby cannot hang on, and falls back down the wall, but the parents do not give up and eventually succeed.
