A Glendale neighborhood became the scene of a chase last week when a raccoon had to be removed from the roof of a home.
Arizona Humane Society spokesperson Ashleigh Gobel said emergency animal medical technicians were called to round up the raccoon that was spotted resting on the roof of a home.
When a technicians got close to the animal, "it became distraught, scampering around the rooftop frantically trying to come up with an escape plan," said Goebel.
The chase took them to a nearby tree and through three neighboring yards before they finally cornered the critter.
Gobel said the animal was safely contained in a carrier, given water and taken to the South West Wildlife Conservation Center. After a few days of monitoring, the raccoon will be released back into a safer more rural habitat.
