That season is upon us, and we're not talking about spring. It's apparently the season for animals getting themselves intp all sorts of uncomfortable situations.
The latest example comes courtesy of a raccoon in California, where a hole had one way in and no way out.
The photos were posted to Twitter by an officer from San Francisco Animal Care and Control who simply goes by the name "Officer Edith."
The "torture machine," as one person called it, was in fact a generator that was holding the raccoon hostage.
But thankfully for the raccoon, all it took were some sedatives and some lube for officers to slide the raccoon out of the hole.
During the ordeal, the raccoon suffered an abrasion to its head, but officers said it will "re-fur in no time."
