Aug. 4 (UPI) -- A Major League Soccer game in Utah was postponed due to rain, but members of the media still managed to catch some action when a raccoon fell through the ceiling and into the press box.

The Leagues Cup Round of 32 game between Real Salt Lake and Club Leon was postponed due to Thursday night's rain, and the same rain likely caused a raccoon to seek shelter and end up falling through the ceiling of America First Field's press box.


Caleb Turner of KSL-TV captured video of the raccoon wandering around inside the box before it was ejected.

Real Salt Lake spokeswoman Delmy Barillas tweeted that the raccoon was rounded up by stadium staff and released next to a nearby creek.
