Firefighters in central Indiana had a strange problem on their hands this week: hashing out what to do with a raccoon its owner said was stoned.
A woman awoke firefighters at Station 82 in Wayne Township, east of Indiana, in the middle of the night asking for treatment for her pet raccoon, according to a tweet from the township's fire department.
"The raccoon had smoked too much weed," the department said Monday, going on to assure readers that, "Yes! It happened!"

The firefighters love animals but weren't able to help the baked beast, according to the tweet.
"It really left the guys scratching their heads that someone brought a raccoon to the firehouse at 2 a.m. seeking help, and especially with the condition the animal was in, so we hope that the raccoon made a full recovery," Fire Capt. Mike Pruitt told NBC affiliate WTHR.
