I think the citizens of Colorado Springs, CO (aka the land of The Mad Pooper) can all heave out a sigh of relief knowing that their neighborhoods are being safeguarded by this furry-faced defender of the law. The Denver Post reported on this little guy who decided to hitch a ride on Officer Christopher Frabbiele’s patrol car as he was on the way to a call for a serious car accident. Eventually, Officer Frabbiele pulled over and the raccoon’s free ride was over. It hopped off and ran away. Colorado Springs PD even posted about it on their Facebook page.
Officer Ringtail is probably the best partner that Officer Frabbiele has ever had! Although I’m not sure that his passenger was exactly thrilled about his sudden journey. It looks like he’s clinging to that windshield for dear life and probably have been happier knocking over trash cans.
