Three men attempting to free a well fed raccoon stuck in the open centre of a bin lid used a wheelie bin lid to free the creature.
The video, recorded in Toronto, Canada, earlier this month shows the raccoon in the back of a pick-up truck while stuck in the middle opening of the lid.
The men placed the lid over the top of a wheelie bin and use that receptacle's lid to push down on the raccoon and free it from the narrow opening.
The men then opened the wheelie bin near some bushes to release the raccoon.
The uploader said the rescue was a much longer operation than it would appear from the video.
"This video begins after 2 hours of getting him into the truck after getting stuck in the bushes as well," they said.
