The Emergency Service Unit responded and found, you know, a critter, instead of a striped feline weighing between 200 and 670 pounds. They then put the small nocturnal mammal in a cage and took it to a shelter, where the story takes kind of a dark turn.
Animal Care Centers of NY took custody of the raccoon and, well, in their own words:
"The raccoon was brought into our facility and was euthanized as required by law for all vector species animals brought into the shelter. Raccoons, bats and skunks are classified as a rabies vector species (RVS), which means it's an animal that can carry and transmit rabies. Technically, any mammal can do so, but raccoons are a higher risk. Thus, the animal is subject to certain laws by state."
Tiger raccoon, you are gone but not forgotten. We salute you.
