Dinner time!!!!

DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) - A baby raccoon that got stuck head-first in a sewer grate is free thanks to the quick and slippery work of some city workers in suburban Detroit.

The Detroit Free Press reports ( http://on.freep.com/Mc835t) Dearborn Heights Department of Public Works Director Bill Zimmer was in his front yard Wednesday when he noticed the critter. He called fellow Public Works employees for help. They used vegetable oil and dish soap to free the raccoon.
A release from Dearborn Heights says the crew took the raccoon to the Public Works yard for a "much-needed shower" before letting it go in the woods.The animal was OK after the ordeal.

I have to agree with Montanasmama: I know a much quicker way to get it out - cut it's little head off, clean it and throw it in the stewpot. Hell, it's already caught, that's half the work right there.
Young coon like that ought to be real tasty.

Knew you’d like this one Kenny. Hate fucking raccoons. They’re like mountain roaches here. Used to trap them and take them 20 miles, one way, to the lake and release them. With the cost of gas and my truck not exactly an economy vehicle now I just shoot them in the trap and haul the carcass up the hollow for other critters to eat.

I am surprised that anyone would call Detroit 911 to report an incidnet with a coon, and be taken seriously.

Coming home from the bar on Friday nigh saw a 20 pounder meandering across my parking lot. Fortunately I had my Glock in the truck with me. Unfortunately, the lady friend I brought home with me wasn't having any of me splattering a coon in my parking lot. I weighed my options and decided to get laid instead. I'll see that fucking varmint again. The coon, not her. She's done.
