If you’re still reeling from Sunday’s The Walking Dead episode, you might not want to watch this bizarre clip. Sure, it’s just a bunch of raccoons reaching through the cracks in a porch for some treats. Keep telling yourself that as you see their tiny, five-fingered hands reach out like zombies clamoring for human flesh. It’s terrifying. 

There’s no backstory available for the clip—the man who uploaded it to YouTube said he saw it on Facebook but couldn’t find the original source—and honestly, I think it’s better left to the imagination.
