Staff sedated the raccoon and they were able to pull the can off without injuring the animal.

"Luckily, the can wasn't on too long since there were not any skin abrasions and the raccoon was only a little dehydrated," the center said in a Facebook post. "He was given fluids and after waking up has already eaten a snack."

The center said the raccoon is expected to be released back into the wild.
