Hearing strange noises coming from your outdoor trash can is never a good sign. However, when Ashley went to see what was inside, she was greeted by four raccoons. It apparently happened a couple of times. Each time Ashley and her family carefully laid the trash cans down so the scared raccoons could be free once again.

For more raccoon silliness, let's check in on the ones at the Rabies Vector Species facility in New York. When they're not hiding in trash cans, raccoons are doing their best impressions of us on our days off. These animals have to be kept separate because they're wild. Although, if you ask us, they seem more lazy than wild.
