Huge rescue operation launched to save raccoon clinging to side of building

A young raccoon got into a bit of jam on Wednesday after scaling the outside of the RBC building in downtown London, Ontario, Canada.

A crowd had gathered on Richmond and King Streets after the raccoon climbed what looked like two storeys up the side of the building.

Some were holding a blanket to catch the raccoon in case it fell while others called for help.

Police, the fire department and animal control all arrived to help. But a London Hydro crew was eventually called in and used a cherry picker, bringing the raccoon down to the ground safely in their bucket.
