    A raccoon has been rescued after climbing to the top of a light post in Queens and clinging there for hours.  

    The masked marauder apparently climbed to the top of a pole at Woodhaven Boulevard and 95th Street in Ozone Park, next to an overpass.

    The FDNY says it got the call at about 3:15 p.m. and the raccoon was rescued a short time after authorities responded.
