Caring Raccoon Checks Out Beagle's Teeth (VIDEO)

And now, for all you animal-lovers out there, here's a cute-but-quick clip of a persistent raccoon giving a very patient beagle's teeth the once-over. Well, raccoons are well-known for their penchant for dentistry, you know.

We also love the way the cat strolls up in the background, takes a look at what's going on, then decides not to get involved. Good move, mate - you're probably best off out of it (particularly if you haven't flossed recently)!

(Big thanks to our US friends at The Huffington Post for alerting us to this clip.)
