LOL: Rascally raccoon leads rescuers on wild chase

(CBS/Reuters) A rascally raccoon led rescue workers and police officers on a wild goose chase in Russia's Kaliningrad.

The raccoon escaped from a local zoo and climbed to the highest branches of a tree in the city center.

The tree was shaken and a plucky rescuer tried to climb up, but nothing worked.

Then officers decided to pull the branch down to the ground, but the raccoon ran away and climbed another tree.

Rescue workers then arrived with special equipment, including a net and a metal stick with a loop in the end.

Finally, the raccoon was caught or was it?

Watch the hilarious video to see the raccoon's multiple escapes before finally being detained and returned to the zoo.
