A raccoon (similar to one shown) bit a resident while gardening on Sunday, June 7 in the Kings Park area.

Animal Control Officers distributed rabies information to residents in the Kings Park area today after a man was attacked by a rabid raccoon in the 5300 block of Kings Park Drive on Sunday, June 7. A man was working in his garden around 12:30 p.m. when a raccoon quietly approached him from behind and viciously bit him causing almost a 12” long laceration. Animal control responded to the scene and shot the animal when it charged the officer. It was subsequently laboratory tested and found to be positive for rabies. The victim was treated and is taking appropriate medications.

So far, in 2015 there have been 21 positive rabies cases investigated by Animal Control Officers; there were 50 in 2014.

Did anyone get this shooting on their cell phone?

Another case of an unarmed coon being shot.

Call Rev. Al Sharpton

Even as it happens, almost all living creatures can get rabies. That's why we should be careful with wildlife, and not only that. Raccoons and without rabies are very unpredictable, vindictive, and reasonably so dangerous. Once my friend was attacked by a raccoon while riding a bicycle. As a result, he fell and suffered a broken collarbone and a concussion. As soon as you see raccoons on your property or nearby, immediately call services that help getting rid of raccoons.
