There, huddled all alone in the middle of the path in front of Ferrell, was a young raccoon screaming out for his mother.
"He was in bad shape laying in the bike trail, flies all over him," Ferrell later wrote on Facebook. "He wasn't long for this world."
Ferrell searched the area in hopes of finding the baby's mom, but she was nowhere to be seen. So, fearing that the little guy would soon perish without intervention, he then loaded up the little raccoon into his backpack and pedaled him to safety.
"I couldn't leave him out there," Ferrell wrote.
