CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -

Firefighters helped rescue a baby raccoon in Coral Springs on Thursday after it had gotten its head stuck inside of a metal soup can.

The Coral Springs Fire Department said firefighters had to cut the can off the raccoon's head in order to free it.

The raccoon had a note with it when it was dropped off at the fire station, asking someone to help it. The note was written as if the raccoon had written it.

"I was in the dumpster and got a soup can stuck on my head. It won't come off," read the note. "Please help me. Thank you, Rock."
