CLEARWATER, Fla. — An injured raccoon fleeing rescuers found a brief – and inconvenient – hiding place under the hood of a car on Monday.
Clearwater police said the SPCA was responding to a report about an injured raccoon when the animal fled and found the nearest hiding place, in this case inside the engine compartment of a Hyundai Elantra.
SPCA workers called police to help rescue the raccoon, and after 15 minutes an officer was able to get it out using his dog pole.
Police said SPCA workers took the raccoon in for medical treatment.
