Congrats to this clever mama raccoon who broke into a car to give birth




 

No one wants their car broken into, but sometimes you gotta give credit where credit is due.

Consider, for example, this mother raccoon, who climbed through a plastic window cover and tumbled into the backseat of a parked convertible at an auto shop so she could safely give birth to her kits.

She was later relocated by Devon of Wildlife, Inc. Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Manatee, Florida.

"I captured the mother, then 2 caring employees and I searched the entire car for her babies," Devon wrote in a Facebook post. "Once they were both accounted for, I relocated them to some woods where she can continue to raise them."

According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the second kit - who is good at sneaking around, just like its mom - was hidden in the trunk.

Raccoon litters are usually between three and five kits, so there's a good chance the mother was still pregnant when she was relocated. Perhaps she'll choose a less, er, spoken-for place next time. Might we suggest a nice tree cavity?
