Raccoon Gets Stuck with Butt when Breaking and Entering

Raccoons are becoming better and better at navigating our suburban landscapes. Despite being impressively sneaky creatures, they do sometimes get caught in sticky situations.

One such sticky situation, is this breaking and entering raccoon getting stuck with its butt high in the air.

A video captures a raccoon’s misjudged attempt to infiltrate a bungalow.

The creature, aiming to enter through a small hole in the roof, underestimated the size of its posterior.

As a result, it got stuck with its butt high in the air until wildlife control could come and save it from its uncomfortable position.

The Footage

They often seek shelter in attics and garages; these areas provide a safe haven from predators and harsh weather conditions.

Why Raccoons Break Into Homes

In their quest for a cozy den, raccoons exploit small openings in buildings, showcasing their determination and flexibility.

Noises such as heavy thudding, chittering, and scratching, particularly at night, are telltale signs.

Signs You Have a Raccoon Visitor

Additionally, physical evidence like torn insulation, scattered debris, and raccoon droppings can confirm suspicions.

Be on the lookout for these signs so that you can intervene early and prevent extensive damage.

Their problem-solving abilities and dexterous paws allow them to open latches, turn doorknobs, and navigate complex obstacles.

Their Surprising Intelligence

They can even remember “solutions” to problems for up to three years!
