I'm sure they were looking for a use for that bat John Gage stashed behind the seat.

They finally found it.

Literally two seconds. That's how long it took to get the jar off.

But people were too busy filming the damned thing to actually help.

I assume they wanted someone with gloves to take care of it.  Who wants rabies?

Raccoons don't carry rabies except in small populations north and east. In FLA, not so much a risk. Zero risk west of the Mississippi, outside of Louisiana.

25 years as a Firefighter.
People would sometimes ask if we got cats down from trees when they got "stuck" up there.
We would smile and say no.
They would ask why not.
We'd tell them that as we drove through the city, we would scan the treetops to see if there were any cats up there that had not made it down on their own.
After all those years on the job, Not once did I see a cats skeleton hanging from a branch by it's claws.
Most cats have more sense than their "owners"

/did have to open a wall up one time to "rescue" trapped dog.
//fell into the wall while playing in an unfinished attic
///opening a 3' x 3' hole in a multimillion dollar mansion to retrieve a small critter, even wiith the owners permission, does generate a rather palid expression on their faces
////you've got that much money, pay someone to finish the attic floor or learn to use a hammer, or get a toddler screen for the doorway

My dad had to rescue a cat from the roof of our two-story house once. The cat had gotten there via tree, but couldn't figure out how to get back down. This cat was not smart.Maybe even borderline special needs. I'm not sure. But if any cat could have gotten himself stuck in a tree or on a rooftop, it was him.

Luckily we had a perfectly good ladder. Nobody had to call the fire department.

I prefer this to the regular news day with humans offing themselves and others.

I snarfed.

And I wore gloves when I pulled a peanut butter jar off the head of a raccoon that was stumbling around in the bushes around my house. My dog was going crazy inside, so I left her there and discovered quite a miserable and dazed animal, once I got the jar off.
Jif Creamy for the win!
But yeah - stay the hell away from me and most raccoons around here end up with rabies (Northeast).

If more raccoons were armed, this kind of stuff wouldn't happen.
