Woman Flees Scene with Raccoon

SORRENTO — A woman called police to report an injured raccoon in the road Friday, but took off with the animal when she learned it would be euthanized.

The woman wanted the raccoon to be taken to a veterinarian to be rehabilitated. When she was told that the animal had to be put down and tested for rabies, she placed it in her vehicle and fled the area. She refused to tell the Warden Service where she was.

“Neither the complainant nor the raccoon has been heard from since,” according to the state police report.
