A study done by the University of Wyoming Raccoon Project was recently published in the journal Animal Cognition, and tests how well raccoons can figure out a problem posed in an ancient Greek story. Wyoming Public Radio’s Caroline Ballard spoke with the researcher spearheading the study, PhD candidate Lauren Stanton, who says the fable they tested centers around a thirsty crow.
