Family get shock when raccoon leaps onto car and hitches a ride

Guardian of the Ford Galaxy?

TENNESSEE resident Michelle Lowry got a shock while driving home on May 23, when a raccoon jumped on the windscreen of her family’s car.

In the mobile phone video above, the Lowrys can be heard in hysterics as the raccoon hitches a lift. The vehicle is brought to a safe stop, allowing the mystified mammal to disembark safely.

Rumours that it answered to the name Rocket and sounded like Bradley Cooper are yet to be confirmed.
