This plucky raccoon crept into a car so she could safely give birth
Now that’s what you call a surprise visitor…
A pregnant raccoon climbed into a car while it was being serviced in order to give birth on the back seat.
Wildlife Inc. Education & Rehabilitation Center, in Bradenton Beach, Florida, shared photos of the moment they rescued the quick-thinking animal and her two newborns.
They discovered she had tumbled into the back seat of the parked convertible after climbing through a plastic window cover.
“Once they were both accounted for, I relocated them to some woods where she can continue to raise them.”
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reiterated that it wasn’t the easiest task locating the kits – that’s what baby raccoons are called, FYI – revealing that one of them was hidden in the boot of the car.
It’s not surprising they were hard to spot – just look how tiny the kits are…
While the mother racoon may not have picked the most private place to give birth, it’s just a relief she and her little family are healthy and now safely back home in the woods.
