Raccoon with jar stuck on head gets stuck on top of pole


FORT ERIE, ONT. (WIVB) – Crews just over the border had a wild rescue on their hands on Wednesday.

A raccoon with a jar of peanut butter stuck on its head climbed a pole near the foot of the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie, Ontario and couldn’t get the jar off or get back down the pole.

The power company had to turn off electricity to the pole to prevent anyone from getting hurt during the rescue operation.

An officer from the SPCA managed to save the raccoon and set the animal free.
