Raccoon surprises policeman with sudden appearance on windshield

As he was driving to the scene of a major accident, Colorado Springs police officer Christopher Frabbiele was surprised Wednesday night when a raccoon hopped onto the windshield of his police van.

"How in the world did that raccoon hop on?" police spokesman Lt. Howard Black told The Denver Post. "It's safe to say a raccoon hopping is not a common occurrence."

The Gazette reported that Frabbiele pulled over and the raccoon hopped off, but not before it was captured in a few photos.

It remains unknown where the raccoon came from.

"There was no word on the raccoon's motive," The Denver Post added.
