Rocky the racoon predicts a win for England
A ‘psychic’ raccoon at Bristol Zoo has predicted a win from England in tonight’s Euro 2012 crunch match with France.
Rocky the raccoon made his choice live on ITV’s Daybreak this morning after being offered two pots with equal amounts of food, one marked with the England shirt and the other with the France shirt, and he had no hesitation in heading straight for the England marker.
His keeper, Mat Richards, said: “This is the first time Rocky has demonstrated psychic abilities and he’s chosen the underdogs to win, so we are all keeping our fingers crossed that he is right and we have a win from England tonight.”
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.
