HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — That’s one way to catch a pesky raccoon.

Michigan firefighters rescued a baby raccoon that got its head somehow stuck inside a sewer cover.

The Harrison Township Firefighters Local 1737 posted the image, which went viral, on its Facebook page.

The post said that firefighters utilized multiple tools to free the raccoon and checked for injuries after it was released from the cover.

The animal sustained no injuries and was released back into the wild where it will hopefully not encounter another sewer again
