racoonFT. MYERS, FL – A victory for this little gal named Tampa Red. She was nursed back to health in Tampa, Florida after a red tide nearly killed her. It was her day to shine as she returned back to the gulf, complete with a tracking device that is supposed to fall off after a couple of years.

But wait a sec, a raccoon rummages through beach-goer Danielle Araica’s bag and snatches her pink wallet. But it didn’t take long for the four-legged thief to change his mind.

“He dropped it and then I had that little boy go in there and fetch it for me,” said Danielle.

He stole a pink wallet and nearly stole the spotlight.
