Driving on the highway late at night can lead to some pretty interesting sights that you would never normally see during the daylight hours.

There’s a strange feeling when you’re cruising down the highway at night and there isn’t a car within sight — whether behind you, in front of you, or even on the oncoming side of the road. Sometimes, the feeling is pretty liberating, but other times, things can get pretty creepy out there.

One driver was out on the road one night when he saw something in the distance on the side of the road. In the dark, it quite possibly could have been a small child or perhaps a baby deer who was struggling, so he checked his mirror, slowed down, turned on his hazard lights, and pulled over to the shoulder.

When he got a bit closer, this driver must have been shocked at what he was looking at. A whole family of raccoons solving a rather difficult problem. These animals, while viewed as dirty rodents, are well-known for their high intelligence and problem-solving skills, and this amazing video captures just that in action.

The group crossed the road without incident, but after Mom and Dad hopped the barrier, it seems that the baby was just too small to jump that height. That’s when these two parents came up with a pretty great plan. Dad grabbed Mom’s tail and slowly lowered her just like Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible. After a few failed attempts, Mom finally managed to grab her baby and let her husband know, who then slowly pulled the two back up. For anyone who thinks animals are dumb, you might want to watch this amazing video!
