Bridgewater MA Resident Visited By Raccoon
A disgruntled Bridgewater visitor notified police at around 9:45 pm of an unlikely visitor. What initially appeared, in the eyes of the visitor, to resemble a cat, was a 20-pound adult male raccoon. Although the individual appeared frightened, disgruntled, and in shock, the raccoon did not bite them.
Animal control managed to safely remove the ferocious animal without many complications. Wildlife authorities noted that their ultimate plan would be to re-locate the animal several miles away from residential areas, so the incident would not repeat itself.
