NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A curious raccoon found itself in a jam on Long Island…actually it wasn’t jam but a peanut butter jar.

Video posted on Facebook shows the raccoon roaming a Farmingdale yard with its head stuck inside the jar Sunday.

The family who found the animal called in some wildlife professionals from Massapequa who chased it down and used a little bit of canola oil to safely removed the peanut butter jar from its head.

The animal appeared to scamper off unharmed.
