Raccoon Freed From Peanut Butter Jar

A curious and hungry raccoon got itself into a sticky situation in Florida this week. People at a school who spotted the critter with its head trapped in an empty plastic peanut butter jar called in a Florida Fish and Wildlife officer for help. Lt. Ruggiero found the raccoon about 30 feet up in a tree, and called in local firefighters. Before they could arrive, the officer was able to catch the raccoon as it was shimmying down the tree. With gloves and a towel, he successfully removed the jar and released the peanut butter-scented animal.
