A neighbor called me yesterday to say she saw a three-legged raccoon (odd) running between yards in the middle of the day (odder). It appeared to her to be sick or rabid. Animal control said they would NOT come set a trap for it.
Last night we caught him in our garbage can out by the street, but he got out. Fortunately he didn't make a mess of the garbage.
So keep an eye out for this animal, and watch your kids and pets.
