A New York raccoon found itself in a sticky situation over the weekend.

For eight hours on Sunday, the scavenger sat with its head inside a peanut butter jar while perched atop a Long Island utility pole.

The unusual sight brought out dozens of curious residents on a Ronkonkoma street. Children quickly nicknamed him Skippy.

Newsday says Debbie Sullivan spotted the raccoon outside her house at 7 a.m. She called Suffolk police, the town of Islip and the state Department of Environmental Conservation. They all said little could be done.

The raccoon's ordeal finally ended around 3 p.m. when a crew from the Long Island Power Authority came to its rescue. The jar fell off as they used a pole to grab the animal.

Skippy quickly scampered off.


I feel bad for laughing, but come on, it's funny!
