Two orphaned raccoons are now in the care of a local veterinarian after rescue workers found the animals following pounding storms in Bristol, Virginia

News 5 viewer David Jenks sent us a photo of the two babies who were scooped-up from a fallen tree. Unfortunately, the animals' mother was found dead nearby.

Members of the Bristol Virginia Fire Department and Lifesaving Crew transported the raccoons to Jones Animal Clinic for treatment.
