“At that point, I wasn’t even sure what kind of animal he was,” O’Connor told The Dodo. “He was definitely breathing, but the jar was around his head very tight.”
She called rescuers from Toronto Wildlife Centre right away, who rushed to the scene to help the animal. As one rescuer held him tight, another cut the jar open, finally revealing the fluffy animal’s identity: a raccoon.
“As soon as they saw his face, they realized he had a sore on his nose and was covered in grease,” O’Connor said. “The jar was most likely a mayonnaise jar, and he had gotten it all over himself.”
