Cop Stopped by Rogue Raccoon

A police officer in Colorado Springs responding to call about a traffic accident saw his trip take a wild turn when a raccoon leaped onto his squad car as it was driving down the road.

The stunned cop actually managed to snap a picture of the crazed-looking creature pressed against the windshield of his cruiser shortly after the animal 'attacked.'

Fortunately, the officer quickly pulled over to the side of the street and, after taking a few more photos of the presumably-bewildered beast, helped guide the raccoon off of his patrol car.

The cop's strange adventure was shared by the Colorado Spring police department on their Facebook page, where they described the officer's reaction as "pawsitively surprised."
