A raccoon rescued by firefighters has become a viral hit on the Internet because it was so ashamed.

They were called a few days ago to save an animal in trouble. Though this wasn’t their first animal rescue mission, everyone was surprised to learn that it was a wild raccoon they would have to help out with.

As a firefighter, you never know what the day will bring. The City of Dalton Fire Department said this on Facebook: “You never know what the day will bring.” There might be a time when a cat needs to be pulled from a tree, but a raccoon? A new one.

It turns out that the firefighters didn’t know that the rescue would end up going viral for a very unusual reason, though. As soon as they found all the animals, they took a few pictures of him. However, the way he posed for the camera made everyone laugh. The now-viral picture shows the rescued raccoon looking very ashamed of what he did. But, after all, he may have had a reason for sneaking into a house to steal food and then not being able to get out.

People can tell that he was embarrassed about it, but there’s really nothing to be ashamed of. “We all need help from time to time.” It took some time after being rescued before the mischievous was released back into the wild. In the future, the Dalton Fire Department hopes that he learned his lesson and will be less adventurous in his search for snacks.
