A family of raccoons have been filmed having their own pool party in a California couple’s backyard.
A video, taken by a delighted animal-loving couple in Huntington Beach, shows wild animals swimming happily around the pool at the start of the Memorial Day long weekend.
Jimmy Senna, said he and his partner Gina Williams were woken up by their dog, Hank, barking loudly and “going crazy” around 5:35 a.m. Friday morning.
When Senna got up to check on what was bothering the dog, he noticed the unique scene.
“I tried to calm Hank down and went back to bed, then he got even crazier!” Sena said KTLA.

“I looked again and saw three raccoons all standing by the pool, and they were playing or fighting.”
Moments later, he recalls, a raccoon fell into the pool and the other two jumped in.
The raccoons stayed in the pool for about 20 minutes and “didn’t care at all that we were looking at them,” he added.
“It was a first – I hadn’t seen this in the over 20 years I’ve lived here.”
Two of the animals eventually left, while the third stayed for another 45 minutes.
“We are true animal lovers” Ms. Williams says ABC 7, ‘so it was an ultimate moment for us, and entertainment at its best. It was a great way to start the morning.
“Look at this guy here, he’s like, ‘Hey guys, I’m in the deep end,'” Williams can be heard saying on the recording.
When the raccoons finished swimming, they relaxed on the steps.

The furry family appeared to be celebrating with their own pool party on Memorial Day weekend
The raccoons stayed in the pool for about 20 minutes and “didn’t mind looking at us at all,” the owner remarked.
The couple said the pool had just been renovated and their furry friends were actually the first to enjoy it.
Despite their cute appearance, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife recommends people not approach or feed raccoons.
“Raccoons can become aggressive when threatened, conditioned by food, or habituated to humans” official notice States.
“Do not approach, confront or try to handle it – raccoons may bite or scratch if they are frightened, startled or feel threatened.”
