Firefighters know how to handle cats stuck in trees. But what about a raccoon stuck in a can!
It happened in Florida, and firefighters were able to come up with a fix.
It was not your everyday emergency for a group of Coral Springs firefighters.
The raccoon was dropped off in a box outside their fire station with a can stuck on his head.
Attached to the wild animal was a note reading, "Please help, I wasn in the dumpster and got a soup can stuck on my head. It won't come off. Please help me." The note was signed, "Thank you, Rock."
The raccoon was freed after a firefighter got a pair of tin snips and made some cuts on the can.
After winning his freedom back, the raccoon ran under a nearby car before scurrying off.
The way the raccoon took off, it appears he wasn't hurt too badly.
As for who wrote the note, the mystery still remains.
