The raccoon found itself in a sticky situation in Fort Erie just north of the Peace Bridge after it was trapped at the top of a hydro transformer pole with a peanut butter jar wedged on its head.

And I'm rethinking the use of glue traps in our farm basement after I had to rescue a two foot long black snake from one this week.
The poor thing was twisted up like a pretzel. She kept trying to take a piece out of me while I was getting the glue off (try cooking oil) but she was too pooped to pop.

The raccoon crisis gets hundreds of calls like this every week.

Unanswered is why Canadians put empty peanut butter jars on the top of their transformers.

Max, they use it as raccoon bait.

I bet a squirrel had something to do with it.

Until I read this I didn't realize that raccoons went to college.

We put them up there so the raccoon's won't get their heads stuck in them. They're so smart those little buggers, I think they used to be lumberjacks at one time.
