Boaters Rescue A Crying Raccoon Who Had Been Swimming In Water For Hours

“During the early morning hours of July 4, 2016, one of our crew aboard our boat heard a yelping sound and at first it sounded like birds overhead,” writes Peter, one of the boaters, on YouTube. “Several hours later we finally found the source of the cry — a young raccoon treading water on the side of the boat. Not wanting to pick it up out of the water, we threw it a life preserver to climb upon and then towed it to land.”
