RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: Mommy and Babies Makes Six

Raccoon mothers give birth to two to five babies at a time. They’re also apparently rather mortherly. Thomas Brass runs the Knolls Cam, where he posts videos recorded in the Haywood Knolls of North Carolina, recently caught this video of a mother raccoon–with two babies of her own–apparently taking responsibility for three motherless ones she stumbles across in the forest. It’s tough to tell how much is true and how much is wishful fill-in-the-gaps by Mr. Brass, given the schmaltzy musical accompaniment on the video who knows what’s true and what isn’t.  But it’s a sweet story to think on.
