(Scroll down for video) A group of train passengers in Argentina, gathered around a raccoon who hopped on board to eat leftover ice cream, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

The YouTube user who identifies herself as Natalia Cara of Iguazu, uploaded the video of the raccoon after spotting it eating the leftover ice cream on a train home from work on Wednesday.

The video shows the raccoon running onto the train to finish the remaining ice cream in a paper container left on the floor by a passenger.

The clever animal quickly ran out of the train as it sounded the departure alarm.

In February, passengers on a train in Canada, freaked out after a raccoon hopped aboard for a ride.

The incident unfolded on Tuesday morning, as the train was traveling on the Yonge-University line in Toronto.

The unexpected passenger caused a delay in train service. The raccoon eventually left on its own.
