Raccoon on a leash in Moscow metro

The Moscow metro is filled with weird and wonderful domesticated animals. Not long after footage of a fox riding the system spread through the internet, another video of a woman keeping a raccoon on a chain leash has emerged.

In the video, the animal (who doesn't quite land its own seat) nips at its owners' hand, before scrambling under her arm and trying to climb into her bag. Wanting it to behave, the owner pulls it back down off her.

Keeping raccoons as pets is not recommended, and is even illegal in certain states. They are wild animals and even several generations of raccoons bred in captivity exhibit all their 'wild' instincts, and will likely be notorious biters.

The clip was filmed in July 2016.
