It’s a sad truth about life that some of the sweetest-looking creatures are also the most dangerous to live around: pandas, hippos, elephants. Foggy Bottom residents are learning that the hard way this week, as an “aggressive raccoon” has started to prowl the neighborhood.
Prince of Petworth reports that the Foggy Bottom Association is warning members about the raccoon, which has already perpetrated one attack on a man’s pants leg:
We have heard reports of an aggressive raccoon in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. The raccoon attempted to bite the pants leg of a neighbor walking his dog along 26th Street one recent evening.
Anyone attacked by the raccoon should call Animal Control at (202) 576-6664.
