Groundhog gets head stuck in can

A groundhog in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania may have never seen its shadow again if not for some fast-thinking police officers.

The large rodent got its head stuck in a tin can.

Video shows an officer trying to pull the can off the groundhog's head.

But when  that didn't work, another police officer comes into the picture  with a long pole and claw grip. He then begins  to pull the can as the other officer pulls the animal from the opposite end.

Three people watching the incident unfold could be heard encouraging the groundhog to come out.

It finally does and scampers off.
