COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – A cunning intruder sneaked inside a Colorado Springs home and hid in a bathtub.

The intruder was a 40-pound raccoon. Alice Scott found the critter this week. She said the animal seemed content to curl up and relax in the tub and wasn’t even afraid of the camera, posing for several shots.

Scott called in the pros who evicted the visitor against its wishes. It turned out the raccoon got in to the house through the doggie door.

The raccoon was taken into the forest and released back into the wild.

    I’m not a big fan of guns, but even if I had one, why the hell would I shoot it in my home and risk damage to the place, or even worse, injury? Especially when you don’t know if the Raccoon has rabies or not. Best to just close the door and call in professionals… less trauma to both you, your family, and the animal.

      Rabies is very rare in Western Unites States.
