Lets break this down a little bit as there’s a lot of stuff going through my mind.
- Why was he climbing the building, and specifically, this building?
- How in the heck did this raccoon survive this?
Falling from this high up is terrifying. Falling from any height is terrifying! I can’t even climb a ladder 20 feet without freaking out. It’s a natural instinct for a raccoon to climb (sometimes trees, higher-up places), but there must have been something he wanted at the top. Perhaps a cheeseburger or food. I know I would climb for that. Just saying…
When I watched this video I honestly thought that was the end for the poor thing. All I have to say is that this guy stuck the landing. 10/10 performance. Luckily that sand was there!
DAREDEVIL RACCOON: Incredible video shows a raccoon climbing roughly nine stories up a building off the Ocean City Boardwalk. It then appears to turn around and jump from the building, spiraling toward the ground. Then it gets up and walks away…
