A man provided a hilarious commentary of a battle between a raccoon and his back garden bird feeder as the animal skilfully tries to break in to it for a snack.
A raccoon found its way into the garden of a semi-rural property in Canada on May 8 and showed off its gymnastic skills scaling up a thin bird feeder all to get a tasty snack.
A video shows the man who lives in the house providing a hysterical play-by-play commentary of the raccoon’s athletic break-in.

The huge raccoon climbs up the thin rod holding the bird feeder, with the whole station shaking under his weight.
The masked bandit then uses his back feet to grab hold of the tiny house holding the bird food while he continues to clamber up the rest of the feeder.
The man commentating says: ‘What kind of bird is this? The back foot action, nice!’
But the man’s commentary only seems to spur the animal on as he manages to reach the top of the bird feeder without the whole thing crashing down.
The break-in only gets more impressive, as the racoon shows he has the stunt moves to star in Mission Impossible by hanging upside down on the rod and reaching to the bird feeder to get his well-deserved snack.
The racoon climbs to the top of the rod and hangs upside down to reach in to the bird feeder to get the seeds, but slips and falls to the bottom of the feeder without his treat
As the man watches the raccoon struggle, he says: ‘Now what? Yeah you’re f***ed. It is not as easy as a dumpster is it?
‘Oh with the recovery! I think he is going to get it! Wow.’
The raccoon successfully manages to push the lid of the bird feeder open and refuses to give up as he struggles to reach in and grab the seeds.
But the raccoon eventually slips, reluctantly sliding back down to his defeat without a treat in hand.
It is not the first time the thief has visited this back garden, as he is often seen trying to steal food from the multiple bird feeders around the yard.
The man said: ‘A raccoon regularly visits to try to empty the bird feeders of seed and suet and, as seen in this video, performs a funny bout of gymnastics while trying to get the job done. He doesn’t get his meal today but gets close!’
