SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A carpenter has been fired for freeing a raccoon that had been trapped by exterminators at the San Francisco construction site where he worked.
Todd Sutton tells the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1x8xudK ) that he came to work one morning in late February and saw the animal inside a trap.
The builders had hired professional trappers to have the critter — which was blamed for damage at the $610 million project — removed and euthanized.
But the 49-year-old carpenter says he put the animal in his truck and released it in a nearby grassy area, after getting guidance from animal control officers.
