Raccoon falls for cat trap

Willow Creek, Ca., (KIEM) In an attempt to catch a loose cat the Humboldt Spay Neuter Network was surprised to catch a different animal.

The organization sets out the traps, so they can spay or neuter feral cats and this wasn’t exactly a part of their plan.

Apparently, this raccoon couldn’t resist the cat trap snacks. The cat in question, you can see peeking out of a bench in the corner. Volunteers say the raccoon tried to make a grand escape by digging his way out.

He was unsuccessful, but was relieved when volunteers released him back into his wilderness home, where he belongs.
