It all began when County Planner Kim Hyten got a call early Monday morning from the staff in the Putnam County Auditor's office telling him there was a raccoon on the second floor window ledge outside their office window.
"He was just looking inside at us," said Putnam County Auditor Stephanie Campbell.
Hyten didn't believe them at first, but the women were eventually able to convince him they really were serious.
"I went over there and checked it out and saw the raccoon on the ledge. We don't have any idea how he or she got up there. We chased him around the ledge, but decided to call in the live trap guy," explained Hyten.
The raccoon, obviously exhausted after his chase around the ledge, ended up outside the Putnam County Recorder's window, where he spent most of the day napping in the corner of the ledge on the west side of the building.
He was later captured in a live trap after hours and transported outside the city and released back into the wild.
