Wild animals who are about to give birth try to find a safe and secure place to deliver their offspring, where neither humans nor other critters can harm them while they're at their most vulnerable.
But sometimes that search for safety lands them in a heap of trouble, or transports them to a faraway place.
A raccoon mom desperate to find a safe place to deliver her cubs smuggled herself on board a moving truck which had recently been burglarized and proceeded to give birth.
Unfortunately, the guy driving the truck was moving from Fort Myers, Florida to Marin County, California, so she and her cubs were stuck in the back of the truck for eleven days without food or water.
When the driver discovered those cute little stowaways they were near death, so he turned them over to the wildlife hospital WildCare for treatment.
WildCare was able to nurse the raccoon family back to health, and the Oakland Zoo was willing to take them in and give them a new home.
