After a strong wind storm, Jeff Baird and his Jeep club stumbled upon this cute, little critter who had found himself in quite the precarious position.
The only explanation is that the tree had fallen during the storm, trapping the bottom half of the raccoon’s body between the tree and ground.
The disturbed ground around the raccoon suggests he’d tried and struggled to wiggle himself free, fatiguing himself in the process.
As the group approached, the raccoon can be seen to be waiting patiently for his rescuers to free him – although becomes a little agitated when the humans get too close!
Using a variety of methods with the limited equipment to hand, Jeff and his club were able to help this little guy wriggle free.
