Raccoons 浣熊

Raccoons

Part of my job at the state fish and wildlife department is to lend equipment to residents for trapping and relocating raccoons. A man who had been successful at capturing one of the animals called to ask whether raccoons mated(成双的,成对的) for life. He said his daughter was worried that they might have separated a monogamous(一夫一妻的) couple.

I don't know why she's so concerned, he added. She's been married three times.

浣熊

我在州政府鱼类和野生动物部门工作时,负责向居民们出借捕浣熊的装备。一个人捕获了一只猎物,他打电话来询问浣熊是否终生只有一个伴侣。他说他的女儿担心他们可能拆散了一对终生伴侣。

我不知道她为什么这么关心这事,他补充说,她自己已经结过三次婚了。
