These hungry raccoons went in search of food in a wheelie bin - but were stumped when they all fell inside and couldn't get back out.  A mother and her two young raccoons went out hunting for food at night and thought they had hit the jackpot when they came across the big bin.<br />
<br />
On top of the bin was a big rock holding the lid down, so no hungry animals can get into it and eat the rubbish - but the clever family managed to move the rock and flip open the lid.  Mrs Morin took photographs of the raccoons then called a friend who owned a pickup truck over so he could take them to a safer place, as her home in Cantley, Ottawa, Canada, is too near a busy road.
