Zoo claims their raccoon is obsessed with breasts
BYLINE: Nathan Rousseau Smith
There's a raccoon in Russia that's apparently obsessed with women's breasts.
The Moscow Zoo rented out Thomas the raccoon for a racy commercial shoot and is now saying that the furry critter was traumatized and left with a rather unique obsession, at least in the animal kingdom.
The zoo is suing the video studio claiming they were never told the advertisement would be "erotic."
A zoo spokesman told the BBC that they noticed Thomas "was attracted to women's breasts" after the shoot, adding that it "took two or three months to change his behavior."
Russian state media says the ad agency may file their own suit because a bra was damaged during the shoot. The whole legal mess is also stopping them from delivering the ad to their client.
The petting zoo's motto is "little animals are not toys."
