Getting Comfortable: Raccoon Makes Itself at Home in North Carolina Backyard

A North Carolina woman joked that a raccoon “owed rent” when the animal took up residence in her Hendersonville backyard. Ann Marie Mulligan dubbed the raccoon Rocket, and captured this video as it made itself comfortable on her lawn. Mulligan can be heard laughing behind the camera and saying “Are you being silly?” as the raccoon lies back, rolls and tucks its fluffy tail in its mouth. Mulligan wrote on Facebook, “No lie … Rocket was doing his daily dig around the yard, but went into this mode when I called to him and started recording video.” She told Storyful that Rocket was “not a pet, nor did we feed this animal – he just lived in our yard for about six weeks.” Credit: Ann Marie Mulligan via Storyful
