Firefighters are the public’s go-to rescuers, no matter what the situation. A woman in Indianapolis turned to the firefighters at Wayne Township’s Station 82 after her pet raccoon ingested marijuana and got “stoned.”
The fire department Tweeted about the rather bizarre request for help:
Story of the day! Our FF’s at Station 82 were awakened at 2 am last week to a person seeking treatment for her pet Raccoon. What was his illness you ask? The raccoon had smoked too much weed. Yes! It happened!
As good as firefighters are at solving problems, there wasn’t much that they could do for the poor animal, aside from letting him sleep it off. The department Tweeted, “As much as we love animals, there wasn’t much they could do.”
The department is hopeful that the raccoon made a full recovery after a good rest.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you have to do more than just “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
