A Daily Dose of Great Police Work

October 1, 2019 (MINNEAPOLIS) – Peek-a-boo! Two MPD Officers were dispatched on a report of a raccoon inside the caller’s closet. Animal Control would not respond until MPD verified there was a raccoon in the house. Upon Arrival, the Officers were greeted by an angry raccoon perched on a shelf. Officers remained on-scene and contained the raccoon the best they could until Animal Control arrived, at which point they assisted getting the raccoon into a trap on the floor. Fortunately, no one was bit! Great work done by everyone involved, which led to some very happy residents! See image below.
