Raccoon caught on video walking down MBTA escalator


BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- An unexpected commuter recently tried to enter the Downtown Crossing MBTA station.

In a video released by the MBTA on YouTube, a raccoon can be seen trying to go down an up escalator.

According to the Universal Hub, the video was from Jan. 20 and the raccoon was trying to get to the Red Line platform.

Go to :55 to watch the raccoon begin his seemingly impossible journey.

One can only assume a mother raccoon was standing at the top of the escalator reprimanding him for fooling around.
