In Fort Erie, Canada, a raccoon became trapped at the top of a hydro transformer pole with a now-empty jar of peanut butter stuck on its head.

“We have a very happy raccoon,” Wendy Trombley, the manager at the Fort Erie SPCA, said after setting the animal free. “We think she is a mom, so there are some babies that are very happy as well.

“She was sitting at the top of pole. She tried to come down but was scared. She went back up to the very top and just sat. She didn’t know what to do with herself.

“People have to wash the containers in their recycle bin. Raccoons like that little bit that we don’t care about and they will go for it and get stuck.”
