A raccoon had to be rescued in Ozone Park Tuesday afternoon after he got stuck on top of a streetlight, authorities said.

The animal became stranded on the lamp post at about 10 a.m. at Woodhaven Boulevard and 95th Street, according to police. By 2 p.m., traffic had to be completely closed off on Woodhaven Boulevard going north.

A emergency service unit, using an FDNY cherry picker, was able to get the animal down from the streetlight by 4 p.m.

At that time, police said they were still waiting for animal control to arrive to take the animal to its Brooklyn facility. It wasn’t immediately clear would what happen to the animal after it’s taken to the location.
