Best picture ever? Raccoon tries to outrun NYPD

How many cops does it take to wrangle a raccoon? 

It took four on Saturday, when New York Police Department officers were called into Genesis Beauty Supply in the Bronx to deal with an intruder — a rogue raccoon.


The New York Post reported that after attempting to use a a marshmallow-lined trap, a tranquilizer gun and a catch pole, the raccoon was still able to elude the officers before finally being put in a cage — but not for long. The cage door malfunctioned and the little rascal was off again.

The cops eventually wrangled the pesky animal into the cage a second time, when they then secured it with zip ties.
