RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: Laundry Laundering

open-uri20140423-21487-1vc6fwh

Russia has been in the news a lot lately, and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Rocket Raccoon has been in the news a lot lately, so how about a Russian Guardian of the Galaxy?  Well, how about a Russian raccoon (or two)?  It seems the Royev Ruchei Zoo in central Siberia holds an annual laundry washing competition between a pair of raccoons (the species being known for its tendency to rinse objects in water.)  This year, the female of the couple, named Masha (the Russian form of Maria), bit her “husband” on the ear and forced him to scurry away from the proceedings.  I guess she’s been training with Mike Tyson. Check out the source link for a video of the event!

And yes, I know that Cosmo is the more direct connection between Guardians of the Galaxy and Russia.
