One day, 14-year-old Daiton McMillion and his bro 12-year-old Rylen arrived back at their Texas house after a family outing.
With some hrs left in the day, the pair went exploring in the woods close by to their home.
Throughout their walk, they came across an animal burrow that had collapsed, yet wasn’t quite empty:
” They found a raccoon around 2 to 3 feet down in the hole. Only his head and front legs were exposed,” Dray McMillon, the boys father informed The Dodo.
” The kids immediately called me and told me what they had found,” the raccoon was buried alive in the burrow.
It had not been clear how long the racoon had been stuck for, but it was clear that the kids had actually located him in time to assist.

” When I arrived, the raccoon was gasping for air,” McMillon said. “It was very sad to see this animal struggle. My boys were extremely adamant that we needed to rescue the animal.”
The trio carefully dug the raccoon out utilizing their hands and a shovel, and then called Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center that sent round some assistance.
Ultimately, the poor raccoon was finally totally free:
The raccoon was found to be healthy and uninjured and eventually ignored where he was caught back right into freedom.
” I could see the sense of success in my kids. They were very excited that the pet was launched safely.”
” When we returned to the house, they shared their excitement with me,” McMillon said. “I might inform this would be something they would never forget.”
