Stuck raccoon plucked from pole

(WHDH) A raccoon was rescued from the top of a utility pole in Berlin, Massachusetts Sunday after being trapped there for days.

Karen Blakeney said she first noticed the injured raccoon on top of the pole on Pleasant Street last Thursday morning.

“People in town have been calling National Grid, the police, it’s been going crazy on Facebook and Twitter,” said Blakeney.

Residents were concerned for the raccoon because of the high-voltage wires. They also scattered bales of hay around the bottom of the pole in case the raccoon fell.
