June 27 (UPI) -- A group of Kentucky police officers came to the rescue of a hapless raccoon that somehow got a peanut butter jar stuck on its head.

The Paducah Police Department posted photos to Facebook showing Sgt. Shawn Craven, Officer Steve Thompson and Sgt. Matt Hopp coming to the rescue of the raccoon Craven spotted while working the night shift.


The photos show the officers holding the raccoon still while pulling on the jar, which was "stuck tight."

"Thompson finally managed to work the jar loose, and the raccoon's head popped out. He promptly ran off without so much as a thank you," the Facebook post said.
