Oct. 13 (UPI) -- A Virginia woman woke up to find a sneaky raccoon had made its way into her house, ending up in her bathtub.

The Animal Welfare League of Arlington shared a photo Wednesday of the home-invading raccoon as it cowered in the corner of the woman's bathtub.


"This isn't what most people expect to find in their bathtub in the morning!" the animal rescue group said. "A few days ago, a local resident woke up and found this scared little guy in her tub."

The woman said the raccoon likely found its way into the home through her attic, which was undergoing repairs.

After spotting the animal intruder, the woman called the Animal Welfare League of Arlington to come rescue the raccoon.

"Luckily, she knew just what to do and called Animal Control, who safely removed the raccoon from the home and released him outside where he happily scampered off!" the animal welfare group said.
