Today’s must-read: Rampaging raccoons!
The Island’s rampaging raccoons are at it again, this time attacking two dogs inside their East End home, the Journal’s Peter Hegarty reports.
As many as four raccoons entered a home on the 3200 block of Liberty Avenue early Thursday morning and attacked the dogs, a 9-year-old Labrador and a 5-year-old Chihuahua, Hegarty reports. The dogs were treated at a veterinary hospital and are under quarantine at home, his story says.
The attack marks the eighth documented raccoon attack on the Island this year, Hegarty reports. It follows a November attack on a woman who was walking her dog in Washington Park.
