TULSA, OK -- People who live at an apartment complex in Tulsa were shocked to see more than soda cans in a Pepsi machine.

They saw two raccoon faces peering out from behind the machine.

"They just kind of came peeking around there and before I knew it, they were all the way out here kind of looking at me," said Linda McWater. "I really thought it was best to get someone that knows what they're doing. We called several people and I finally got hold of the Skunk Whisperer."

The Skunk Whisperer, Ned Bruha, has rescued all types of wild animals from inside attics and under houses. So while the call was unusual to the apartment residents, it was just another day for him.

"They put money in and a little raccoon hand came out," Ned said. "All wildlife wants is food, water and shelter, that's all wildlife wants. That raccoon has substituted that water with Pepsi."

After the Pepsi vendor opened the machine, Ned was able to use a little of his quiet coaxing and a gentle poke in the backside with a bent coat hanger to evict the troublesome twins from their poolside condominium.

"This is what we do every day," said Ned, "and when we can save an animal's life, that makes it so much better."

The raccoon kits were relocated to much more appropriate accommodations at a local wildlife sanctuary.
