One of the most interesting raccoon jobs we had was when The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced the Temple of Dendur display area had a live raccoon. Can you imagine being inside a museum with the lights dimmed down for effect, and you see a  raccoon stroll past you? We were able to remove the raccoon immediately before it meandered into other sections of the Met, which houses million-dollar displays of famous artwork.
