This is the perfect way to show up unannounced to your local city council meeting.
A raccoon did just that and a little more when he fell during a recent session in Acapulco, Mexico.

The shocked animal ran around and then jumped onto a table while the politicians yelled and even laughed at their fellow lawmakers’ fear.

Acapulco City Council members were in the middle of a meeting when their session was interrupted by a raccoon crashing through a ceiling tile
According to the Acapulco newspaper El Sur, the incident happened on December 22, when the city council was reviewing the budget package for January and February.
Acapulco City Hall happens to be located in the 52-acre Papagayo Park, making it an ideal visiting spot for raccoons that roam the area.
It’s unknown how the raccoon got inside the building — let alone the ceiling.
The creature eventually escaped through a side entrance door after interrupting the City Council session

However, the animal remained in place after a piece of ceiling paneling fell to the ground while council members stood on chairs and tables.
The invading raccoon continued to run around the room before escaping through a side entrance door.
