Rescued Raccoons Unite! (VIDEO)

Rescued Raccoons Unite! (VIDEO)

At Rainbow Wildlife Rescue in Texas, five rescued raccoons — Squiggy, Iggy, Fred, HuffnPuff and Lucy — were united! They’ll spend the winter in Texas, and will then be released back into the wild in early spring. 

Watch the video to see these lucky raccoons playing and getting to know each other in their temporary home.

Very cute video!!! Lucky they have these great people to take care of them!! They look like they're having a fun time and forgetting about how they got there!

They look very sweet. I have heard of raccoons being destructive wild animals not suitable as pets. I suppose they are much like foxes.

Always nice to reed stories like this. I hope they survive in the wild. Thanks.

To the one who feeds them. Not a good idea. They are cute and fun to watch -- they run and fight all over the roofs of the houses here, but they also are a danger to domestic pets. My cat was attacked by one and didn't survive. If you're in an area with raccoons, keep your cats in at night.

Such cute little snots, and *so* destructive! I love raccoons and they really are cute but please don't anyone ever try to make a pet out of one, because they aren't "pet" material.

So cute! I put food out for the raccoons too, but i can't help but talk to them- I don't try to get too close, of course, like Suze O says- don't want them to trust humans...

Softens the sadistic memory of a raccoon being skinned alive. Tis a sweet diversion. I recently saw one on a median - dead. I got out of my car, took a photo of the corpse and peered at fast and furious cars exceeding the speed limit over ten miles an hour during rush hour. I wish more were like us; chances are they too would find it in their hearts to caution to others on the road without metal to protect them.
