there are so many questions. why is this raccoon in someone’s hallway. why is it rolling. why does it stop for a moment to check something and then clearly decide to roll again. what did it find that made it roll to the right instead of the left. why is someone filming all this. why did someone let a raccoon into their house in order o film this. what is that on the floor that the raccoon is rolling away from. why is it rolling away from it. why.
