Reports of chupacabra in Chicago, now diseased raccoons in St. Louis …
(Rachel Menitoff, KSDK) There’s an uptick in diseased raccoons. People are seeing the nocturnal animals in broad daylight.
Robert Langellier went to walk his dog when he came face to face with a little guy sitting outside his apartment. He said the raccoon did not show signs of being at all scared of his rambunctious puppy.
“It wasn’t until like a minute or so passed, that the raccoon – that there was something going on with it. It was kind of walking around dazedly, confusedly,” said Langellier.
“It was very skinny, definitely on its last leg so to speak,” he said.
“They have a really dusky sort of appearance to them,” explained another resident.
“They have very mucus-y [sic] eyes,” she said. “In one week alone, within 50 feet of each other, we had three different raccoons here in the street here.”
