As much as you may find them a nuisance, even raccoons have feelings.
A “heartbroken” raccoon was seen trying to wake up its dead friend in Toronto recently.
In a video uploaded by YouTube user A Ka last weekend, you can see a raccoon running towards his friend on the road. “The other [raccoon] stayed on the scene. It began running in circles and crying, almost oblivious to people and cars that gathered around. Then it approached its friend and began shaking it vigorously,” Alec Khachatrian wrote.
Some people thought that the raccoon was trying to eat the other one, but Alec doesn’t think so. In fact, he said that there were “no bite marks, blood or signs of violence on the dead raccoon”. Although they can be violent, raccoons can be friendly and compassionate too!
