Rocky the raccoon predicts a draw for England
The match result predictions of Rocky the ‘psychic’ raccoon at Bristol Zoo have taken a less patriotic turn as he has forecast a draw in tonight’s Euro 2012 match with Ukraine.
For the third time since the European Championships began, Rocky the raccoon has made his choice after being offered three pots with equal amounts of food, one marked ‘England’, another with ‘Ukraine’ and a third with ‘draw’.
After a ‘rocky’ start last week when the raccoon predicted an England triumph against France – a game which resulted in a 1-1 draw - Rocky went on to correctly pick England to win Friday’s game in the European Championships.

Now his keepers are hoping his prediction will prove correct, as a draw tonight would be enough to secure England’s safe passage through to the quarter finals.
One of Rocky’s keepers, Mat Richards, said: “Obviously a win from England would be ideal, but a draw will be enough to get us through to the next round, so we are hopeful that Rocky will once again prove correct in his prediction.”
News of Rocky’s ‘abilities’ is growing and the Zoo’s star has so far appeared on national television, radio and print, as well as in the world’s media.
Rocky’s prediction follows on from the success of Paul the Octopus, who correctly predicted the outcome of all seven of Germany's matches during the 2010 World Cup. Whether Rocky will have the same winning streak is yet to be seen.
