Earlier today, Monday, November 12, a northern raccoon was admitted to the #CROWClinic from North Fort Myers after it had gotten itself into quite the predicament.
The male raccoon had gotten its head stuck in a soup can. The veterinary team, concerned with his ability to breathe, immediately used a can opener to remove the bottom of the can. The raccoon was then given sedation medication so the team could safely cut the can away, however, as soon as the medication began to take effect, the raccoon relaxed and the can was easily slipped from his head.
The veterinary team checked him over and found he was in great health. He did not sustain any cuts or injuries from the can. Once fully recovered from the sedation medication, he will be returned to the wild.
