A raccoon from Bristol Zoo has predicted the outcome of England's Euro clash against Ukraine tonight - he thinks it'll be a draw. Rocky correctly predicted that England would beat Sweden in Friday's match but failed to correctly guess the outcome of England's match against France.
As England triumphed 3-2 over Sweden, keepers at Bristol Zoo must have been breathing a sigh of relief. Their star raccoon Rocky correctly picked food from a bin indicating England would win. Whether he's psychic remains to be seen but we're all hoping England's success continues during Euro 2012
Tanya Mercer reports on a raccoon called Rocky who's become an internet sensation. He has predicted that England will beat Sweden in the European Championships. Keepers at Bristol Zoo think he might be psychic, like Paul the octopus who predicted all Germany's World Cup clashes in 2010.
A 'psychic' raccoon from Bristol Zoo has no excuses for not getting the result of England's Euro clash with Sweden tonight correct. His keepers say he was unable to successfully guess England's last match against France because he was not given the option of 'a draw'.
– Rob Goodchild, Zoo Keeper
We all had our fingers crossed for the first England match, but we only gave Rocky the choice between England or France winning – we didn’t offer him the option of ‘a draw’. So this time we’ve taken no chances! Once again Rocky has selected England to win in a completely fair test, so we are all hopeful that England will be victorious in tonight’s Group D clash in Kiev, and that Rocky will prove right!
It would seem Rocky has a lot of confidence in the England squad after first predicting them to win against France and now Sweden.
