I don’t think we expect too much of raccoons. They should be furtive, sneaky, and agile (and, hopefully, rabies free). A pair of raccoons could not live up to all of those expectations when foraging for food in the dumpster behind the New Jersey 101.5 radio station.

They had no problem getting into the dumpster, but they were stumped as to how to get out. Their rustling about in the trash drew the attention of some humans, including our chief engineer, Frank. Being the problem solver that he is, Frank, along with marketing and promotions director Dave Kirby, devised an ingenious plan to to help the hapless raccoons out.
