A baby raccoon struggled to make his first big steps in the world of tree climbing, until his mother gave him an encouraging nudge up the trunk.

 In a cliffhanger worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster, a mother raccoon attempts to coerce her baby onto a tree.

At first she appears to receive little response but undeterred she carries the youngster in her mouth before nudging it up the trunk.

The footage was taken in a backyard in Port Townsend, WA, US.

“We saw a raccoon in her nest and realised she had a cub,” the owner said.

“After watching for about an hour she seemed to be teaching the cub how to climb a tree.” (Source)
