Audacious Raccoon Goes For a Swim in the Pool While His Worried Brother Waits to Rescue Him

A wonderfully audacious domestic raccoon named Willie enjoys a refreshing turn around the family pool while his worried brother Waylon nervously waits on deck, ready to the rescue when needed.

Several days later Waylon decided that he wanted to join in on the fun and learned how to swim.

According to their human Vicki Coppen, the brothers were adopted from a licensed breeder and have received the love and attention they need, but warns that the animals need a great deal of care.

We had a rescue for 6 years but these are domesticated from a breeder. They are lots if fun but very high maintenance. Do research before you buy.
