Zombie Raccoons Are Terrorizing An Ohio City

Over the past three weeks, WKBN reports that police in Youngstown, Ohio, have been called to no less than 14 disturbances involving menacing raccoons exhibiting "zombie-like behavior." Adding another layer to the weirdness, a majority of these incidents have occurred during the day, even though raccoons are nocturnal. When one sun-drenched raccoon came after Robert Coggeshall's dog, he says the pint-sized predator stood on his hind legs, showed his teeth and then fell over backward "into almost a comatose condition." The Ohio Department of Natural Resources suspects the raccoons are acting up because of a distemper outbreak.
