Police officers in Zion, Illinois, responded to an unusual call recently when a raccoon got stuck in one of the city’s sewer grates.

In a Facebook post, the department posted images of the animal and attempts by one officer to rescue it.

Animal control officers “were unable to remove him and had to request help from the real heroes over at the Zion Public Works Department,” the Facebook post explained.

The raccoon was “no worse for wear” after the close call, police confirmed.
