Raccoons are known to be curious and sometimes their inquisitiveness gets them into some truly complicated situations. But this one went a step further than most and got himself stuck between a rock and a hard place, with no chance of getting out of it on its own.
But that’s where heroes come in. A new video published by Barcroft TV has captured the remarkable rescue of one such raccoon. The authors give us these details:
A cheeky raccoon was too curious for its own good after it got its head stuck in a DRAIN COVER. Officials from the Wildlife Emergency Services near Santa Cruz, California were called on to assist the poor animal. The experts sedated the critter and a grinder was used to carefully cut through the metal. After treating the raccoon’s superficial wounds it was given a small snack and happily set free.
And everyone is appreciating the rescuers’ heroic efforts, as evident in the comments. Here is one thankful viewer:
AWE! How touching. I LOVE animal rescue folk … and send them ALL loads of blessings. They must have incredibly good karma. 🙂 I wonder whether this fellow even remembered his tragic and uncomfortable ordeal after coming out of sedation???
Another viewer responded that “it remembered it for sure,they’re(animals) all a lot smarter than we realize..he knew that they helped him too”. I agree.
Here are some of the highlights of the rescue operation:
