South Korea cafe features raccoons, capybara

By Ben Hooper

June 2 (UPI) -- A cafe in South Korea is attracting customers with a set of unusual residents -- two raccoons, a capybara and a corgi with identity issues.

Han Song Hee, owner of the Blind Alley cafe in Seoul, told Insider the business was a normal cafe until she purchased it about two years ago and started bringing in her baby raccoons, Cong and Milk.

Song Hee told Refinery29 she bought Cong from a breeder and rescued Milk from a fur trader. She said she added the capybara -- one of the world's largest rodents -- to the family when she rescued it from a zoo that went out of business.

Song Hee said the cafe has also since acquired a third raccoon, Shot, and a corgi, Cookie, that has spent so much time being brought up among raccoons that it thinks its one of them, rather than a dog.

The animals are kept in a special room at the cafe to keep them away from customers' food.
