A New Jersey woman who looked out at her pool during the recent heat spotted an unusual visitor taking a swim
— a raccoon. Lauren Liedel said she spotted the trash panda cooling off from the extreme heat in the backyard

leisurely in the pool. Liedel said the raccoon climbed out of the pool on its own and scampered away.

swimming in their backyard pool.The reptile was safely captured and the family said they are trying to find it a new
