A nimble raccoon was filmed snatching a doughnut from a Canadian café over the festive season.
The furry thief was caught in the act by a vigilant customer, who recorded the incident and shared it online.
It has since been viewed over 310,000 times.
Descending from the ceiling of the coffee-shop, the animal delicately reaches for a pastry from the tempting display.
“If he falls out of that hole it’s gonna hurt,” an amused onlooker can be heard saying.
“People outside were cheering when he finally got the doughnut,” Peter Jensen, who recorded the video, told Buzzfeed Canada.
The agile raccoon was quickly compared to “pizza rat” who made waves online earlier this year.
Pizza Rat captured the world’s attention earlier this year, when it was caught on video dragging a slice of pizza down a series of subway steps.
