CANTON, N.Y. (NEWS10) – An unlikely culprit was responsible for a disturbance at a New York prison.
The New York DEC says a raccoon got into the St. Lawrence County Correctional facility up on the Canadian border, perched itself on a gate and wouldn’t leave.
They had to use a catch pole to snatch it and pull it down.
The raccoon was released back into the woods outside prison grounds.
