LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct. 12 (UPI) — A Kentucky college student paid the price for getting too close to a raccoon when the animal snatched his cellphone.
The raccoon’s feet can be seen scurrying away from a distraught Williams as he shouted out “Stanley,” a name he had given the raccoon just minutes before.
“Had to chase it for 5 minutes and I had named it Stanley like minutes before this happened so that is why I was yelling that,” Williams said.
Williams later confirmed neither his phone nor the raccoon were harmed during the encounter as he managed to devise a more peaceful way to reclaim his stolen property.
“For all those curious, ‘Stanley’ finally dropped it after we started calling my phone,” he said.
