VIDEO: Raccoon takes ride on Tennessee teen's windshield


Published in Cats & Dogs News

(UPI) A teenager who was only on her second day as a licensed driver experienced an unusual hazard behind the wheel when a raccoon hitched a ride on her windshield.

Haylee Lowry, 16, was driving home from basketball practice with her mother in Tennessee when she thought she ran over a raccoon.

The animal surprised the mother and daughter moments later when it climbed to the windshield of the still-moving car.


Lowry's mother, Michelle Lowry, captured video of the raccoon's daring stunt.

The video shows the raccoon hop down when the car stops and dash away.
