It's a raccoon with a very mature case of sarcoptic mange. Exactly right.

I'd never heard of an albino raccoon, but just looked on wikipedia. It kind of does look similar to what was in the video. Not that the video was an albino, but it helps to see another version of a raccoon and how it's similar.

I suppose one could live trap a raccoon and shave it as an experiment to see for your self. 1- You'd see the strong resemblance to the one in the video and 2- You'd get to hear them make all sorts of noises, mostly growls and 3- You'd realize right away that it was a bad idea........lol Just kidding.

Shaving would be better than waxing, for sure!
