While On Their Boat, They Heard Yelping. When They Saw What It Was, They Couldn’t Believe Their EyesAshley Maisano
A group of boaters were out on Swann Creek on the Fourth of July when they heard a yelping sound nearby. At first, they thought it was just birds overhead, but several hours later they found where the cry was coming from: a young raccoon treading water near the side of the boat.
Since they didn’t want to pick up the raccoon out of the water, they threw him a life preserver which he then climbed onto right away. While he was holding on to it, they pulled him to shore and released him on dry land. Thank goodness these boaters saw the helpless little guy or else he may have eventually drowned!
