(Scroll down for video) A college student decided to take video of himself feeding a raccoon near campus.

However, the animal gave him a run for his money

Guy Williams of Elizabethtown, Kentucky, was trying to record the animal when it snatched his phone and ran off.

Williams said that he placed his phone in a grassy area on the ground so he can get a good video of the animal. However, the raccoon, which Guy named Stanley, approached his smartphone and grabbed it.

The animal had the phone between its teeth as it ran away. Williams and his friends ran after the raccoon in an attempt to get the phone back.

The phone was recording the entire time as the raccoon ran. After a chase of about five minutes, the animal finally dropped the phone and Williams was able to grab it.

He posted the video of the incident to social media, where it went viral.
