MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– Two Paducah police officers had an interesting encounter Monday night.

They spotted a raccoon running down Irvin Cobb Drive with a plastic peanut butter jar stuck on his head…

The officers corralled the disoriented critter, and worked to remove the tightly stuck jar.

They finally managed to work the jar loose, and the raccoon’s head popped out.

According to their Facebook page, "He promptly ran off without so much as a thank you."
