Some Russian prisons use animals to rehabilitate inmates. Recently, raccoon nicknamed Semyon was checked into the Yekaterinburg prison zoo. There are already animals living in there: Chinese alligator, aquarium fish, rabbits, parrots and turtles. According to inmates, the raccoon feels comfortable. He investigates corners, meets visitors and eats cookies and dried fruits off hands. Inmates jokingly consider the animal to become the next prison gang leader. Position is currently held by the alligator.
