Animals have a great sense of survival and use all their tricks and resources to stay alive, no matter what pickle they find themselves in. This baby raccoon was certainly out of its depth when it was found swimming in a creek. Early one July Monday morning in 2016, some people who had decided to take their boat out heard a weird noise while in the water.
The thought it came from some birds nearby. However, they heard the sound again and just couldn’t find out the source of the yelps. Hours passed and someone peeped over the edge of the boat to find a bedraggled baby raccoon that looked absolutely exhausted treading water and swimming alongside the boat.
The kind Samaritans didn’t want to pick up the wet but wild animal from the water into the boat as these creatures are known to be quite dangerous. However, it really needed help. Some guy named Peter came up with an ingenious idea to throw the lifejacket into the water to help keep the animal afloat.
And the idea worked! The thankful and tired baby clung onto the life preserver while they figured out what to do next. We see in the video that it was towed to shore while holding on for dear life to the life preserver in a smaller boat. This was a great idea that saved the young raccoon’s life while didn’t endanger the humans on board the boat.
We hope it managed to find its family and was reunited soon. At least this was a story where all ended well. I can’t imagine how it had the strength to keep going on, especially when it looked so young! These kind folks certainly did their good deed for the day when they saved the little one’s life. Kudos to them!
