A raccoon put his ninja skills to use in a stealthy doughnut-stealing mission at a Canadian cafe. The furry masked thief has been caught in the act by one of the customers and his escapade was put on YouTube.

The raccoon descended from a coffee-shop ceiling, artfully reaching for a shelf full of pastries.

“If he falls out of that hole it’s gonna hurt,” one of the amused onlookers says.

But the raccoon held his own: In seconds, he grabs a doughnut and flees back to the shadows.

The whole caper was caught on camera and was shared online. 

“People outside were cheering when he finally got the doughnut,” Peter Jensen, who recorded the video, told Buzzfeed Canada.

The doughnut-stealing raccoon was quickly compared to “pizza rat” from the New York subway. The rodent 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.
