The raccoon outran the educators, who eventually called in animal control for help.
However, the specialist was also unable to detain the creature, even after deploying a lasso.
The critter’s caper continued, with a teacher seen on surveillance camera trying to trip up the raccoon with her foot.
While faculty members may be adept at wrangling rowdy teenagers, they were outmaneuvered by the fast-moving animal.

‘Why wasn’t he wearing a mask indoors?!’ one quipped.
‘This is classic. I think we need a little more agility from the animal control officer though,’ another remarked.
