    Florida Wildlife Workers Free Raccoon Found With Soup Can Stuck on Head

    Workers at a Florida wildlife clinic were able to free a raccoon that got its head stuck in a soup can.

    Workers at a Florida wildlife clinic were able to free a raccoon that got its head stuck in a soup can.

    The northern raccoon was admitted to the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife in Sanibel Monday after it was found with the Campbell's Chunky creamy chicken noodle soup can lodged on its head.

    The veterinary team used a can opener to remove the bottom of the can to help the raccoon breathe. The raccoon was given sedation medication so the can could be cut away but as soon as the medication took effect, the raccoon relaxed and the workers were able to slip the can off its head.

    The raccoon wasn't hurt and was being returned to the wild after he recovered from the medication.
