There was a stray raccoon in the Mets weight room at Citi Field

It's been a big weekend for the Mets. All the club did was:

- Trade for Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson

- Promote the team's No. 1 hitting prospect to The Show (Michael Conforto)

- Watch as those three guys combined to go 7-for-12 with two doubles, a home run, a walk and three RBIs in their first game together as Mets

Oh, and the team hung a solid 15 runs on the Dodgers in the process on Saturday.

As if that wasn't enough excitement, the team showed up to the Citi Field clubhouse weight room on Sunday to find a stray raccoon hanging out in there.

One fan with an inside scoop was able to create an artistic rendering of the scene in the Mets clubhouse weight room just moments before the fugitive raccoon gave himself up:

Seriously, though, the Mets issued a statement to explain that the raccoon was only captured temporarily and was released into the wild.
