Virginia Beach officer helps raccoon stuck in a jam


VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – An officer’s job is help creatures great and small–just ask Officer Joseph Schmeer.

The Virginia Beach police department got an unusual call Wednesday at about 5:30 a.m. A raccoon was trying to get to the bottom of a mayo jar when his head got stuck.

Officer Schmeer came along and after a good ten minutes of tugging and turning, he managed to free the animal from its tight spot.

The thankful raccoon then went on his way, up a tree. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
