...what the dog doing besides barking?

...if she's going to get a new dog?

...if it was legal to use air guns in the city limits if this wouldn't
happen so often? (7 *reported* attacks in four months?)

...if the missing cats/dogs that are blamed on coyotes/dognappers are
actually victims of raccoon gangs?

...are the Raccoon Gangs going to spread to other cities and take over
from the Crips and Bloods?

Raccoons Attack Alameda Woman
Animals Puncture Victim's Leg

POSTED: 8:15 am PST November 10, 2010
UPDATED: 8:25 am PST November 10, 2010

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- It started with "a pair of eyes."

It ended with an Alameda woman screaming and her dog barking after a
raccoon bit her, puncturing her leg.

The Oakland Tribune reports 33-year-old Rachel Campos de Ivanov was
walking her 20-pound Yorkshire terrier at about 11 p.m. Sunday when she
spotted the eyes near a fence around a baseball diamond at Washington Park.

Next thing she knew, a raccoon was walking toward them, then she saw
four more descending from the trees.

Campos de Ivanov tried to get away, but tripped. That's when one of the
raccoons sunk its teeth into her leg as she tried to protect her face.

She'll undergo rabies treatment for several weeks.

Meantime, Alameda County Vector Control is investigating the Attack --
the seventh reported since June.

Seems that folks in California have been having quite a few animal attacks. Probably the animals can sense the weakened condition of the people of the State. Predators always like to pick off the young and infirm. Smile

air gun? Sounds like a good reason to carry a shotgun. I've never heard of anything like raccoon gangs attacking people. We have gangs of them attack our sweet corn every summer.

An appropriate airgun does the job quite nicely. Mine has accounted for 22-25 of the blasted poultry killing varmints. Of course, my shotgun has also taken a few. The airgun has the benefit of being quiet with reduced range and penetration, both rather important qualities in an urban environment such as Alameda. The airgun just demands an accurate shooter who takes head shots. Quite an effective tool in the hands of one who understands them. Of course, so is the shotgun. Smile

First thought: Raccoons are trying to take over the world!

Second thought: Only in Alameda; this guy deserved it!

Third thought: What did he tell his wife? "I slammed it in the car door" probably wouldn't be any better than the truth! Embarassed
