Raccoon with jar stuck on head finally comes down from Southfield telephone pole
Animal spends hours atop pole
A raccoon who found himself in a tight spot with a jar atop a telephone pole in Southfield was rescued Wednesday morning.
Local 4 cameras were rolling as neighbors in the area of Greenfield and 12 Mile roads stood watch for hours as the raccoon, which had its head stuck in a jar, hugged the pole and refused to come down.
Just after 6:30 a.m., neighbors called Local 4 to say the raccoon had finally come down and they had taken the jar off its head.
