The unlucky critter was discovered early Sunday morning on Ronkonkoma street in Long Island, perched 30-feet up a utility pole with his head stuck inside a peanut butter jar.
The community called the Suffolk County police, the town of Islip, and the state Department of Environmental Conservation to try and rescue the raccoon, who they aptly nicknamed "Skippy."
"My husband discovered this around 7 o'clock this morning," said local resident Suzanne Macaluso, prior to Skippy's rescue. "Lots of people in the neighborhood have been coming around."
"We've made many phone calls," she added. "We called animal control, they can't do anything. The Lakeland fire department was here, the police department was here and basically we were told there was nothing we could do to help the little guy up there."
Around 3 p.m., after roughly 8-hours, the Long Island Power Authority came to Skippy's aid, freeing the raccoon from his peanut butter prison and sending him back into the woods.
Skippy can at least take comfort in knowing that, judging by this February 2009 clip, he isn't the only raccoon who might have a sweet tooth for PB and J.
