Police authorities in California, U.S. responded to a report of an unusual burglary in progress.

According to United Press International, they arrived only to find out about a dozen of brawling raccoons.

The Richmond Police Department said two officers responded to the City Corporation Yard after an employee called them.

The staff reported a banging on the administration office door that sounded like a burglar attempting to break in.

“The crime-fighting duo we sent found approximately one dozen raccoons in a physical altercation,” police wrote on Facebook.

They noted, however, they broke up the raccoon “burglary” successfully before leaving the scene.

Still in California, animal rescuers chased a pair of young wild racoons inside a city bank earlier this year.

According to various reports, the call came from a customer who spotted the animals through a window while using an ATM.

Personnel from the Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA then responded to the Chase Bank branch in Redwood City.

PHS/SPCA spokeswoman Buffy Martin Tarbox said they do not usually get to deal with a bank break in.

“But since the bank robbers were masked bandits of the wildlife kind, we were indeed the appropriate responders,” Tarbox added.
