Raccoons Visit State Capitol

A pair of masked intruders were caught in the act of roaming the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City Wednesday night. Security footage shows two raccoons running through the building. Evidence indicates they rifled through a state senator’s office and left a mess in a cabinet where snacks are kept. The cleaning crew found the critters in the restroom, where they were trapped until animal control could be summoned.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol, which provides security for the Capitol, says it's not sure how the raccoons made it into the building. Patrol Capt. John Paul joked: "They didn't have any ID on them, no known address."

The two raccoons were to be taken to a wildlife sanctuary. You can see the security video and more pictures of the raccoons and the damage they did at KFOR. -Thanks, John Farrier!
