Arkansas fans catch raccoons at Baum Walker Stadium stands

Fans at Arkansas’ Baum Walker Stadium saw more than just a baseball game Friday night. Multiple raccoons were picked up by Razorback fans during the Hogs’ game against Vanderbilt.

The first raccoon was on the third-base side of the stands. Tweeted photos and videos of the incident went viral on social media.

The fan who picked up the first raccoon had to leave the game and get a rabies shot.

Not allow him to. He will be back at Baum Walker tomorrow and said he will jump into a Twitter space another day

Later, another raccoon was in the stands.

Arkansas fans are unlikely to be adopting “rally raccoons,” though. As far as the game on the field, Vanderbilt won 9-6 in extra innings. Arkansas remains on top in the SEC West at 16-9 while Vanderbilt is second in the SEC East at 13-12.
