Daredevil raccoon hitches ride on windscreen of a police car

It was a “pawsitively” surprising encounter.

A police officer in the US found himself carrying an unexpected hitchhiker while he was on his way to the scene of a car crash.

Christopher Frabbiele was en route to a serious accident in Colorado Springs when a raccoon jumped on to the windscreen of his patrol car out of nowhere.

We hope the raccoon made it to wherever he was going.
