Raccoon invades armored vehicle at U.S. Army base

A U.S. Army soldier stationed in Colorado captured video of colleagues scrambling to exit an armored vehicle to get away from a hitchhiking raccoon.

Jossie Chavez, who is stationed at Fort Carson, captured video of the scene that unfolded when a raccoon invaded an armored vehicle known as a Bradley Fighting Vehicle.

“We were surprised that a raccoon found a way to get inside a Bradley,” Chavez told Fox Television Stations. “It’s really not common, that’s why we were all surprised by it.”

The video shows soldiers scrambling to exit the vehicle, with the raccoon following closely behind. The animal then runs off into the distance.
