These 2 Sneaky Raccoons Broke Into A Bank In California

Raccoons have once again shown the world that it’s not just a funny coincidence that they wear natural criminal masks on their adorable little faces.

Apparently, a few days ago, a couple of these trash pandas were caught inside a closed Redwood city bank located in California. These fluffy bandits were spotted by a man who was using the bank’s ATM. Luckily, the team of Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA were able to come to the rescue.

“It’s not every day an animal organization gets called to deal with a bank break-in, but since the bank robbers were masked bandits of the wildlife kind, we were indeed the appropriate responders,” Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA’s Communications Manager named Buffy Martin Tarbox said in a press release. “The bank managers let our rescue staff into the bank, and after about ten minutes of chasing the raccoons around the bank, we were finally able to safely shoo them outside. They apparently didn’t want to leave the bank.”

“There were muddy pawprints on a tree outside the bank, so we suspect the raccoons climbed the tree to the roof of the bank, and then somehow managed to crawl into the air ducts and fell through the ceiling tiles onto the floor of the bank,” Buffy Martin Tarbox added. “There were several broken ceiling tiles, and the masked bandits knocked papers around and even a computer over.”

It is so hilarious for me to imagine a horde of people chasing around 2 raccoons for 10 minutes xD. The fact that the Humane Society and the SPCA were there makes me think that the raccoons were especially wily and the Humane Society had to call for backup. Also imagining that the raccoons actually were planning the bank heist for months before getting foiled by atm man hahaha

Well, they are already wearing masks, so a career as a bank robber is a no brainer!

If they told us how the raccoon bandits got out, then we’d know how to get in. — Sounds like a serious design flaw in the construction of this bank.
