RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Sometimes you just want to be a good person.  You see an injured–but not dead–animal on the side of the road and feel that it’s your civic duty as a fellow creature on this Earth to help out.  Unfortunately, we’re usually just not prepared for all that may entail.  For example, a woman in Indiana recently tried to get an injured raccoon to a veterinarian after luring it into her car with potato chips (as the video included above shows, raccoons dig chips; but then who doesn’t?).  Sadly, things didn’t go well when the animal became a little more lucid and a lot more irate that somebody had Bogarted his chips.
