Curious raccoon invades news set

A curious raccoon dropped into a TV newsroom in Flint, Michigan Thursday during the morning news.

The morning show team heard some noise coming from behind the set and quickly found the source was "Rusty" the raccoon.

Rusty made his way in through an open garage door.

News anchor Elizabeth McFarland watched as weatherman Brian Hughes, wearing oven mitts borrowed from a cooking segment, shooed Rusty away.

At first the raccoon actually went further into the building, but after about 20 minutes, Rusty finally made it out safely.
