Featured Animal Action


The boys convince a group of girls to go swimming at night in their underwear. While they swim, a raccoon approaches the boys' clothes on the shore, grabs them and walks off with them in its mouth. No actors were in this scene and crew was limited. A trainer placed the raccoon, which was equipped with a waist tie controlled by an off-screen trainer, on its mark near the clothes and used a buzzer to get the animal to walk to the clothes, which were lined with food. The raccoon sniffed around near the food for a moment and then trainers cued it with a buzzer to walk along a pathway lined with pens. There were no clothes in its mouth — the clothes were actually clipped to the raccoon's hidden collar to make it appear as if it was dragging the clothes away.
