A hitchhiking raccoon hopped onto the hood of a Colorado Springs police officer’s large major accident van as he was driving to the scene of a car crash Wednesday night.

Great. Suicide raccooners. Next: improvised exploding opossums.

While the masked raccoon had the driver and crew distracted a few squirrels cracked open the rear door and tossed out all of the good drugs to their waiting buddies.

Little known fact: Hitchhiking Raccoon opened for John Denver in his last concert.

I love the expression on the raccoon. I hear:

"Dude, slow the hell down! Can't you see me here! Really, slow down man..."

Dispatch, what's the code for "I have a raccoon on my windshield"?
10-45 if you apply brakes. 10-96 if the animal is imaginary.

Time to call Detective Joe Kenda.
Fans of "Homicide Hunter"will get this.

Tails from the hood.

Dave? Hello/ Dave?

Looks like a publicity shot from Guardians of the Galaxy 2. (Or at least some furry creatures think they are!)
