Rescue a wild animal once and you’re an animal lovin’ hero, but when you have to rescue the same wild animal over and over again it’s time to wonder whether natural selection is trying to take its course.
Because there must be something wrong with a wild critter who keeps landing in a heap of trouble only a human can rescue them from, right?
Well, maybe the raccoon Dmitry Tkachenko keeps rescuing, the one he calls Sneaky Pete, is like one of those hapless characters you see in the cartoons- a well-meaning goofball who can’t seem to take ten steps without falling flat on their face.
Dmitry says he has been rescuing Sneaky Pete from the trash bin approximately 5 times a week since July 2016, when Pete was but a wee trash panda:
This silly trash panda needs rescuing approximately 5 times a week. Hopefully he’ll remember my kindness and take care of me when I get old.
