As reported by Barcroft TV, a producer of news segments, a raccoon was recently stuck in a drain cover in Santa Cruz, CA and needed to be cut out of the metal fixture after it was separated from the ground. First off, the title is a little silly: “Cute Raccoon Freed From Drain Using Angel Grinder”? Well that’s redundant. It’s a raccoon so of course it’s cute! Secondly, it’s a real shame to see the fur worn away around the animal’s neck, but at least it got a cool coat of purple antibiotics sprayed around the damaged area to help it heal. Purple’s my favorite color! Especially on raccoons! But hey, all’s well that end’s well as the little guy got to go home.
And I love that little grin the raccoon’s got on the snapshot image for the video, although I think he was sedated at that point.
