Soo people living in the Prospect, Conn. may have something to worry about. But than again if they have something to worry about so do the rest of us.
Yesterday I was flipping through some channels only to hear a clip of the news what I caught was "A woman bitten by a rabid racoon." Now to the untrained eye this may not seem like anything at all. But even a rookie zombie fighter knows the media covers up any possibility of an outbreak so I did some more research and found some disturbing news. Here are some inserts from the news report. I've highlighted key facts in red.
"State officials say the separate incidents happened recently. In one case a woman was attacked in her backyard by a raccoon that came out of some bushes unprovoked. She was hospitalized and the raccoon tested positive for rabies."
“He came out after me and I ran, but I didn't run fast enough. He came after me, bit me in the ankle, and I turned around and grabbed him."
"I grabbed the hammer, came running out. As she was holding it to the ground, I hammered his head open.What disturbs me, I smashed his mouth off, smashed his teeth in, he still wanted to continue in the attack mode. I hit him repeatedly in the head, and he still kept coming. I was getting worried he wouldn't die!”
Now what really perks my interest is that the raccoon came out unprovoked and it chased her. Now rabies isn't really qualified as a "zombie virus" you know but in my opinion it's not really rabies. But than again rabies can have some interesting effects on the human body.
"In another case a raccoon attacked a dog that was tied up in its backyard. The dog had to be euthanized. That raccoon has not been located yet."
"Meanwhile, officials are warning people to be aware of raccoons that are out in the daylight because they could be showing symptoms of rabies."
Here's the article for you guys. http://www.wtnh.com/dpp/news/new_haven_cty/rabid-raccoons-attack-2-...
Just be careful out there guys!
i'm pretty sure it's just rabies. raccoons usually get that come the start of summer. and raccoons usually bite dogs (they sometimes hump dogs, too, on a funnier note) in the backyard. rabid animals will also attack until they're more or less torn to shreds if the first blow doesn't kill them outright.
and on another note, i'm pretty sure raccoon city was named raccoon city after a local abundance of raccoons, especially as it's in the American heartland, especially as towns around the American heartland are named after whatever happens to be closest by and of note. since raccoons are notorious for sneaking into farms and stealing valuables/small livestock (much like foxes are), they would naturally be of note.
if you were talking about RE's raccoon city specifically, then i actually can imagine how that turn of events wouldandmybrainjustdiedagain
okay, what i'm saying is:
i can imagine how that would make sense in raccoon city, what with the raccoons (which the city is named for) attacking locals because of an escaped animal specimen (or a wild animal being exposed to hazardous by-products) and being a nice little runner-up to the total and complete infestation of the city.
