On Thursday, police in the city of Zion, Illinois, received a call about a masked bandit in great distress.
“It seems this little guy has been eating a little too well and got caught in the sewer grate,” The City of Zion Illinois Police Departmentwrote on Facebook, referring of course, to a local raccoon.
The officers were unable to rescue the pathetically adorable critter on their own, and had to call in for reinforcements from the Zion Public Works Department. The raccoon was freed, but not before those on the scene snapped some photos, which the department posted on Facebook.
We think you’re beautiful either way, little buddy.
