Raccoon used to Dumpster-Dive and finally hits Rock Bottom

For this raccoon, it all started with just one little taste of the good stuff, which was leftover human food. Although at that time, that wee nibble might have seemed harmless, what happened was the opposite.

This dumpster diving went on for a while, and recently, it got so out of hand that the cops had to get involved. On this fateful day, the raccoon was having the lowest point in his life, and Officer Sean Bailey of the Amherst Police Department was called to this scene. Although the raccoon had climbed into the dumpster filled with discarded food to get his fix, he ran into a problem, as he got stuck, and couldn’t get out.


In an interview, the police officer had this to say: “When I first approached the dumpster, I saw the little guy huddled up in the corner. He looked up at me with his little puppy eyes, eventually turning away from me and hiding his face in the corner.” Although Bailey was able to gently pick up the raccoon out of the dumpster, it was proving to be difficult to lift the spirits of this rueful creature.


The poor raccoon was so in shame as it was led astray due to his desire for forbidden food. Because of this, he had hit rock bottom. Whatever said and done, the only way for the raccoon to go now, was up. With the assistance of Officer Bailey, the raccoon was now able to get his life back on track on the straight and narrow. Bailey went on to say: “I released him there, right back into the wooded area behind the dumpster.”


Hopefully in the future, the raccoon would stop dumpster diving, and keep those behind him, and go back to eating and getting his fill on raccoon food. It’s no fun for anybody to get stuck in a huge trash can, and finally Officer Bailey jokes sayin: “He better have [learned his lesson]. Because next time I catch him playing in the dumpster, he’s going straight to jail.”
