White raccoon spotted in Palmetto

White Raccoon Sighting

PALMETTO (WWSB) - A viewer who captured this video of a white raccoon walking around outside of their Palmetto home reached more than 13,000 people on social media.

The little guy is just minding its own business, but the question is how rare are white raccoons? We did some research. Some sources say odds are you’ll get hit by lightning before you see one. Others say they’re not that rare at all.

We did reach out to the experts, of course, including a local wildlife center to see if we can learn a little more. But until then, just enjoy the video!
