Since I don’t do “in the news” posts about stories that involve raccoon attacks and reports of rabies, there’s always been a chance I’d have trouble finding something to report on one week. There is, after all, not that much going on in the world of raccoons on a weekly basis.
Fortunately, I was able to find something raccoon related and worth reporting this week! In a profile on a postal carrier in a local newspaper, he dished about the worst experience he’d had in his job. It turned out to be the time that he opened a mailbox and found a dead, rotting raccoon stuffed inside. He figures it was a prank by some kids.
