A cheeky raccoon was too curious for its own good – after it got its head stuck in a DRAIN COVER. Officials from the Wildlife Emergency Services near Santa Cruz, California were called on to assist the poor animal. The experts sedated the critter and a grinder was used to carefully cut through the metal. After treating the raccoon’s superficial wounds it was given a small snack and happily set free.
