LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) – A 74-year-old Lakeland woman was hospitalized after being mauled by a pack of raccoons she tried to shoo from her yard.
Gretchen Whitted fell when five raccoons surrounded and attacked, suffering extensive cuts from her neck to her legs.
“We’re not talking about a lot of little bites here,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said. “She was filleted.”
In Seattle, I had a raccoon family living in my garage and they kept me trapped inside my car many a time. I didn’t want to get filleted.
