Baby raccoon, puppy form unlikely friendship


Man’s best friend has a new best bud.

A puppy and a baby raccoon jump for joy over their new friendship. The little raccoon named Moshka was paired up with the puppy named Broshka at a Siberian zoo. The unlikely match was made after the raccoon, born at a different zoo, was left to fend for himself since his mother could not cope with five cubs.

Zoo keepers thought the lonely raccoon could use a friend, and the dog did the trick. Now the two mammals not only share an enclosure but they play together, eat together and even try to imitate each other.
