Zoo raccoons competed in clothes washing competition

Workers at Roev Ruchey Zoo in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, attempted to break up the monotonous day of two caged raccoons at the weekend, by giving them clothes "to wash".

The raccoons, Masha and Artem, were meant to compete with each other while the zoo's visitors acted as judges.

The panel of judges took into account their enthusiasm, the desire of the animals to work and quality of washing.

After much deliberation, the result was declared a draw.

The stuff people come up with. Pretty cool, though. Think I'll hire one.

In German, raccoons are wash-bears.
