Indians instinctively know that they’re supposed to protect their lunch, phones, cameras and other belongings if they’re walking across a park or in a zoo, or even in the hills, for there’s no guarantee when a monkey will suddenly jump out and grab at your things. Well, such ‘criminals’ are everywhere around the world, and in this one case in Costa Rica, it was a raccoon that fit the bill.
A short 30-second video on YouTube is regaling people around the world as it shows a curious raccoon sniffing around a bunch of people in what seems to be a park, till its attention is drawn to a woman holding a bag of food. The tiny animal makes a lunge at the bag, successfully snatching it from the woman’s hands, but it lands on the ground.
