This was all over Twitter and Facebook last night when someone caught on camera a raccoon that appeared to be grieving the loss of a friend. Or was it something more sinister? Was the raccoon shaking the other to revive him/her or giving it a good beat down? There could be a raccoon gang turf war going on in the city that we don’t know about. Most people seem to believe this raccoon was devastated over the loss of his buddy. Reading some of the comments online people were really upset that this raccoon lost it’s friend.
But before you get all broken up, aren’t these the same creatures you bitch about getting into your garbage, making a mess of your backyard etc?
Perhaps there’s a bigger story. Maybe this raccoon was the same one riding the subway earlier this week, searching for its friend only to finally find him last night dead in the middle of the road. “Wake up Johnny, wake up noooooo Johnny!!!!”. Ok I’ll stop. Poor raccoons.
