In Florida, a local resident called the police at night after hearing a suspicious noise in the closet. The law enforcement officers who came to the call identified an ordinary raccoon in the attacker.
The police tried to catch the animal by throwing clothes over it, but the raccoon quickly hid under the bed. After sitting there for a short time, the raccoon began to scamper around the rooms. The police had to make a real chase after him. As a result, it was possible to drive the raccoon out of the house only with the help of brooms. One officer was wounded in the arm.
A video of the incident was posted on Facebook by the Tampa Police Department.
