Beware the Raccoons!

Sent in by Joe Lacks


A recent rash of raccoon "attacks" have occurred to several Sylvia Lakers. This photo shows a racoon that got into a car at the Joe and Kelley Lacks home on West Shore Rd at about 2 am on 4/26/10. The raccoon managed to fit into a 4 inch wide gap of the passenger window as it seemed to be attracted to a bag of chips on the seat.

He left once the paparazzi showed up.

In othe raccoon related incidents, several owners of pontoon boats who stored them at the fairgrounds this winter had their seats, cushions and canopies devoured by naughty 'coons. At least 5 boats were damaged. Some of the damage was severe! Lesson: Keep a tight lid on everything!
