Raccoon found in Somerset garden


A Somerset couple have spoken of their shock at finding a raccoon in their back garden.

Bandit, as the raccoon has been called, is safe in his new home at the Secret World Animal Rescue Centre where it is being cared for until its owner can be found.

Before his capture, he had been causing nightly havoc in the garden, breaking plant pots and squaring up to the family dogs.

If his owner does not come forward to claim him, the charity will try to find Bandit a new home.
