Firefighters in Russia rescued a raccoon that was stuck in a more than 32-foot high tree.

In the southern Russian city of Pyatigorsk, firefighters arrived at the scene to find a raccoon stuck in the tree.

As one rescuer attempted to carry the animal down, the raccoon jumped off the tree, scaring the firefighters. The raccoon, however, survived the jump. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
