One raccoon may need to consider adopting a diet after getting stuck in a sewer grate in Zion, Illinois shortly after Halloween.

The City of Zion Police Department responded to the call and, low and behold, there was the raccoon.

Photos show an officer trying to help the little guy out of the grate.

After unsuccessful attempts to free the animal, police were forced to call the Zion Public Works Department.

The raccoon was ultimately freed.
