n A pair of rambling raccoons explore the entrance to a storm drain after walking across the street from Wadley hospital in the 900 block of Olive on Saturday in Texarkana, Texas. A few minutes later, the parentless duo used a branch stuck in dthe drain to make their descent. Raccoons are weaned by three months but remain with their mothers for another year, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department website. "The name raccoon came from an Algonquian Indian word arakun, which means 'he scratches with his hands.' During the 1700s, American colonists dropped the 'a' in arakun, and the name became raccoon," the website states.
