It was a normal day in a Louisiana State University dining hall, until it wasn't

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

(SOUNDBITE OF THUMP, SCREAMING)

FADEL: ...A raccoon fell from the ceiling. Within seconds, chaos ensued, with people running out of the cafeteria and jumping on tables for safety. Eventually, animal control was called, and they managed to capture the raccoon. But I wonder if he ate any junk food before they got him. After all, raccoons are known to have really garbage diets.
