A police officer was working security one night in June of 2016 at a high school in Camdenton, Missouri, when he saw a family of raccoons struggling to help one of the babies climb a wall. He recorded this impressive animal family teamwork in the video below.

The mother raccoon instructed her family to hold her legs while she leaned over to grab the baby and pull it up.

What an amazing example of a mother’s dedication to her family and the intelligence that can be found in animals!
