2008_07_raccoon-1 Commenting on the uptick of rabid raccoons in NYC, Manhattan teacher Meg McDonnell outlines the dangers of these modern-day masked bandits: “It’s like Central Park in the ’70s when you had to be fearful of people – now you have to be fearful of raccoons.” Or do you? Officials say no one has been attacked despite the surge and the last person to be infected by rabies in New York was 1953. |NYDN|
