Baby raccoon vs mama: How feisty is too feisty?

Young raccoons can be pretty feisty, and sometimes they get a little carried away. The youngster in this clip was definitely pushing the boundaries.

During the worst of the summer heat we put a tub on the deck for the raccoons to cool off in, and they will play in it for hours. If we toss in a ball, they have even more fun.

This little guy seemed to be playing imaginary soccer. When his mama came up behind him, he thought “she’s coming for the ball”. He checked to see if the referee was watching and then deftly defended by body-slamming mama, who – mother raccoons being the most patient creatures on earth – shrugged off the assault and ignored him.
