RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: Jar Half Empty or Half Full?


The crew for WPLG 10 in Miami, FL noticed a baby raccoon in a nearby dumpster struggling to free itself from a jar it had gotten stuck over its head.  After recording it writhing around for a while they called on help from the local fire department who came and freed the animal, who happily scampered away.  You can tell the script writer for this story is very impressed with his/her-self, because of the obnoxious use of alliteration throughout the narration.  Also, they used the word “coon,” which is sure to offend some despite it being completely appropriate in this case.
