An animal shelter in California helped a local homeowner with an unusual problem. An animal had gotten its head stuck in the hole of a roof.

Can you guess what the animal is? Here are some choices.

  • A.) Monkey

If you guess A, B, or C you would be incorrect. We tricked you. The answer is RACCOON!

Beware, you are about to see a booty pic.

The Santa Cruz Animal Shelter said in a Facebook post that they had received a call from a concerned citizen. A raccoon had chewed through their roof and gotten stuck, (as you can see in the photo above.)

Time was of the essence as the raccoon was dangling headfirst into the home. The homeowners were immediately instructed by the shelter on how to push the raccoon through the hole so it wouldn't suffocate.

It was discovered that the raccoon was a mama. She was saved by the homeowner and is now back safe with her babies.

Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter said, 'Wildlife Emergency Services will help the citizens to set up a repellant barrier to safely and humanely have mama and her kids move along to a more appropriate home. We always love a happy ending."

Humane Wildlife Control Inc posted a helpful comment under the post: "A good reminder to not close up openings without taking precautions - animals might be inside. This mother raccoon was trying to get back to her babies after repairs were made and she was locked out."
