West Hartford Animal Control came to the rescue of a family of dumpster-diving raccoons Tuesday.
Animal control said the family of four got stuck in a restaurant dumpster while scavenging for leftovers. A delivery person noticed their plight and called for help.
The raccoons were able to climb out when an officer placed a pallet inside the dumpster.
Authorities remind business owners to close dumpsters to prevent animals looking for an easy meal from getting trapped inside.
