Firefighters in Georgia, USA, this week found themselves dealing with an "embarrassed" raccoon home-intruder.
City of Dalton Fire Department were called to a home in Dalton home on Monday to extract the critter and release it back to the wild.
They reported: “You never know what the day is going to hold when you show up for your shift as a firefighter. Sure, there may be the occasional cat needing to be rescued from a tree, but a raccoon? That's a new one.
“We were called out to help this guy find his way back out of a house in Dalton Monday night. As you can tell, he was pretty embarrassed about it, but it's really nothing to be ashamed of. We all need a helping hand every now and then.
“After helping our new friend out of the jam, we were able to take him to safely release him back into the wild where he'll hopefully be less adventurous in his search for snacks from now on.”
