Raccoon News Archive
Never did we think we'd see the day when an animal would rise up and become the greatest Sprinkler Harp player on the planet!
It's true, this raccoon (below) plays better than Wet Larry Olmstead, Becky Faucét, and even Moist Jim!
But seriously, if you're in the mood for a good laugh — or at least to have your day brightened — you gotta watch this cleverly (but kinda poorly) edited video!
It's worth it! AFTER THE JUMP!!!
There are tons of nature reality shows out there.
And nature is unpredictable, and reality TV is super fake most of the time, so of course it'd make sense not every wild animal encounter on TV was actually that random, or wild.
Like on Animal Planet's show Call of the Wildman there are some disturbing reports claiming that the rescued animals are not only planted there by subcontracted handlers, drugs have even been used on them!
That's right, drugging animals just so they can be on TV easier!
A report by Mother Jones looking into the show said:
Ha! This is seriously one of the most random things ever!
But it's also one of the funniest things we've seen in a while!
When it comes to raccoon dancing, this man certainly knows what he's doing. He's clearly done this before.
A man, who looks like a total hillbilly mountain man, was rocking out, dancing on his porch to some Aretha Franklin!
His pet raccoon, a big fat one at that, was there with him, trying to get in on the action.
At first, the raccoon seemed confused, but he eventually joined the man and started dancing!!
It's soooo random and so cute we can't stop watching!!
Check out the video (above) for a hillbilly dance party!
We could never condone violence against any living creature.
We don't even like violence against non-living things!
But when your doggy is being attacked and needs your help, you do what you gotta do.
That's exactly what happened when Kevin Rose, the founder of Digg and partner at Google Ventures, found his dog, Toaster, being attacked by a raccoon!!
And she might just get the chance to do it.
Charlotte Ponce was attacked by a pet raccoon as a baby, leaving her face severely damaged.
But now, at ten years old, little Charlotte will have reconstructive surgery on her ear, mouth and nose.
School has been hard; Charlotte has noticed that she is different from other children.
But in the next two years, Charlotte won't have to worry due to her upcoming surgeries.
She can enjoy being a kid. And that's the most important thing!
