Nutty Predicament: Raccoon Trapped Atop 25-Foot Pole with Head in Peanut Butter Jar Sparks Daring Rescue Effort

A raccoon in Florida has been rescued after a man noticed it was stuck on top of a telephone pole with its head caught in a jar of peanut butter.

It was a power company line worker who eventually saved the day.

A raccoon in Florida (shown) was rescued after Good Samaritan Joe Milo noticed it was stuck on top of a telephone pole with its head caught in a jar of peanut butter on Friday

‘When he has a jar on his head, it’s hard for him to breathe, so eventually he may have gotten dizzy and just fall off,’ Crystene Prokop of Wild Florida Rescue said.

The raccoon, nearly three stories in the air atop of a telephone pole 25 feet high, got its head suck in the jar after looking for a snack

Milo called Wild Florida Rescue of Brevard County, and a representative for the organization called Florida Power & Light, which sent a line worker (shown) to get the creature down

On the first attempt, things got extra sticky, as the creature slid a bit down the pole.

They then worked together to free it from the jar, which wasn’t too difficult, the Wild Florida Rescue official said

The light pole the raccoon was rescued from is located on Olsmar Street in Palm Bay.

Milo was pleased to see the animal scamper off, once it was back on the ground. The jar the raccoon’s head was stuck in is shown
