Those pesky raccoons. Always getting into our garbage. That's why I affectionately refer to them as Trash Pandas. On Long Island, one ended up with his head stuck in a peanut butter jar.
After shooting some video (because that's what you do in situations like this), the Farmingdale homeowner called Bobby Horvath, a licensed wildlife rehabilitator from "Wildlife In Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation" in Massapequa, to free the critter.
A happy ending on this Happiness Happens Day!
